Salmon might strike you as a summertime, beach-side dish, but oh, that’s where you’d be mistaken! Salmon can be for any season; all you need is the right glaze! Autumn Salmon illustrates this point by glazing the succulent, rosy fish with a glaze that is equal parts tangy, sweet, savory, and herbaceous. It’s really quite easy to make too; just whisk the glaze together, marinate the salmon, and roast. The result is a fillet of fish that feels perfect for enjoying while also enjoying the refreshing chill in the air. Autumn Salmon will warm you up from sea to shining sea!
