5 stars from 1 rating of Orange-Mint Salmon

Orange Mint Salmon is a savory twist on traditional baked salmon. it's very easy to make and extremely healthy. Some people, understandably, don't like the taste of fish. This recipe makes the taste of the fish less pungent and palatable for those non fish fans whom still crave the health benefits of seafood. Enjoy!

      sweetie, I'm sure you could replace it, maybe with a hearty fish like Halibut. Maybe do a google search for fish comparable to salmon, native to your region. Let me know what you find... good luck and thanks for stopping by and reading!

      This looks very easy to make and delicious to eat recipe. Since we don't get salmon here in India..Can i replace it with any other fish which might be available in market here?
