Thanksgiving Salmon

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Expat in Holland

A nice and easy recipe that pleases. Has a taste of sweet and tart that compliments the salmon. Great way to use leftover cranberry sauce after the holidays. I love to use a flavored cranberry sauce with orange or raspberry with this recipe as well.

I live in the PNW and recently acquired fresh salmon from my friend who pulled it from the Columbia. I wanted to try a more festive recipe for Thanksgiving with my family from the South so I thought I would try this before we all got together. It was amazing!! A spectacular complement to the salmon and kept the salmon moist and tender. Great recipe!
