Get ready for quite possibly the best salmon dish ever. This rocked our world. Now I know many of you don’t like Salmon, if you don’t you could totally sub any other fish or even chicken but this is so good with Salmon. The Greek salsa/salad that goes on top makes the dish. You start with marinated feta and then mix in some dill, tomatoes, cucumbers, kalamata olives, pepperoncinis- it is just so vibrant and zesty. You roast the salmon nestled with onions and lemons for added flavor. This truly was a wonderful dish we can’t wait to make again.
Also wanted to mention my Staub baking dishes are on major sale- under $100 for the set of 3!
