      TIP: To skin the salmon: Place a salmon fillet on a clean cutting board, skin side down. Starting at the tail end, slip the blade of a long, sharp knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding the skin down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30° angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.

      Yum! This is a great preparation on salmon! The pepitas add a nice crunch and the lime butter adds a very nice flavor. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
