With summer well underway, we’re making the most of our favorite recipes that are low on prep time and require little effort in the kitchen. Of course, we have salads galore, sandwiches aplenty, and assembly-only dishes on repeat. But when it comes to a simple standout meal, you can bet we’re turning to salmon first—this totally delish baked salmon, specifically.
This recipe for Roasted Salmon and Spicy Cucumber-Orange Salsa comes courtesy of Melina Hammer, author of the newly-released cookbook, A Year at Catbird Cottage: Recipes for a Nourished Life. Perfectly-cooked, juicy salmon is a thing of art in and of itself, but at Camille Styles, we believe that it needs a little something-something to step up the flavor. Enter: this spicy, citrusy, and slightly sweet salsa.
Cooling cucumbers are amplified by a mix of deliciously-fresh dill, punchy fish sauce, and jalapeño. And don’t you dare skip the orange zest—your salmon will taste like summer because of it. So if you’re ready to make the easiest summer dinner party recipe yet, gather up everything you need to make this baked salmon and follow this genius recipe below.
