Citrus & Almond Salmon

Updated: Mar 9, 2019

Oh, Madison's spring-time.

It is pretty much the first time after months of despair and depression (because winter here S.U.C.K.S.) that I find a glimmer of hope in life. Colors pop-up everywhere. Vegetables begin to make an appearance. I finally want to leave my apartment and see people. I also get inspired to make recipes that you look at and say: "wow, I never thought a piece of fish and a slice of orange could make me smile." It is also the time when I start wearing crop tops so I need to get a bit more dialed in with what I am eating.

This recipe is loaded with healthy fats, fiber, and protein. It's also quick to make so you can go back to enjoying the outdoors.

NOTE: if you have not experienced hell-ish winters with sub-zero temperatures and have no clue what I am talking about, you have no idea how good your life is.



4 oz. fresh, skinless Atlantic salmon filet*

2 Tbsp fresh orange juice

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 clove garlic; minced

pinch of salt

pinch of pepper

7 g slivered almonds
