I made a pan seared salmon with a sweet and spicy salsa. The meal was delicious! The salsa ended up being the star of the dish and would also do wonderfully as a part of a salad. I was so excited to make this meal and even more excited to try it after beginning to smell all of the ingredients together. My family loved this meal and it’s made its way into my family recipe book! The pictures shown are just for the salsa, since it was the ultimate star!
