Atlantic salmon is farm-raised, and almost all Atlantic salmon sold in grocery stores is farm-raised. Wild Atlantic salmon is an endangered species, fishing for it is prohibited in this country.
To add to the confusion ~ there are 5 species of wild Pacific salmon, rely on your fishmonger...
Whatever... I love salmon and for dinner, this time I opted for a simple version of the fish.
Brush the salmon with melted butter, then arrange lemon slices, capers and thyme over the top.
This is simplicity ~ hassle-free delicious salmon to go with your favorite sides!
