Today, I’m bringing you a beautiful and delicious salmon dish. While I love the idea of serving it for Valentine’s Day, it’s really easy enough to recreate any day of the week. Why do you need a made-up commercial holiday as an excuse to make a great meal?
All this recipe takes is a little bit of time. It just requires some upfront vegetable slicing, and then you place the salmon in the oven and let it slowly roast.
This is a great Valentine’s Day dinner recipe–it seems fancy and elegant (salmon! roasted citrus! fennel!) but it really is simple to make, allowing you to spend more time with that certain someone. It also feels special–out of the ordinary–from the typical dinner routine. The salmon looks best when it’s perfectly imperfect, so you don’t have to worry about making it look picture perfect.
Zach and I are forgoing restaurants this Valentine’s Day and you should too. I guarantee this salmon dinner is better than the prix-fixe menu with overdone steak. Pop open a bottle of wine, starting preparing some citrus, and enjoy the night in with your love!
