The fresh salmon to the lemon-butter and capers is what makes this dish particularly special. Some sources state that salmon is one of the world’s healthiest foods, but we will just say it is one food necessary from time to time in your diet. Salmon is rich in B12, selenium and vitamin D, all of which are essential for proper development and growth. If you have children at home, know that this is a very grown-up dish, but if their developing taste buds can acquire unique flavor combinations from a young age, then the world really is their oyster, even if they don’t dare try that one yet. So get ready for scrumptious Salmon with Lemon-Butter and Capers!
