This was lovely! We planned on salmon for Thanksgiving, bot I'm a bit pedestrian when it comes to fish... We had ordinaey salmon from the market, but it was delicious. As it happens, we did have Meyer lemons courtesy of a friend. This is just wonderful. DD is a salmon fanatic and I was really glad to do something different for a change. Thanks for posting.
