Simply Seasoned Salmon with Thyme, Capers and Lemon

Simply Seasoned Salmon

Salmon is one of the easiest, most versatile fish to cook.  Baked, grilled or poached, for lunch or dinner,  it is  also a great add on to rice bowls or Summer salads. Today, at the market when I saw wild caught salmon (which is not always available here) I had to buy it.  I am cooking mine “simply seasoned”, it is a fast and easy version and works for a light summer lunch or dinner.  Let’s Cook!
