Citrus Salmon

Grilled Citrus SalmonSalmon is one of my very favorite proteins and is a great alternative when I am sick of chicken. I know that a lot of people shy away from cooking fish. I am here to tell you that it is SO simple! I buy frozen salmon fillets from Costco. They are individually wrapped, skinless, and the perfect portion! If you don’t have a Costco Membership, don’t worry! I’ve found them at most other stores, too. I’ve also tried tilapia, if you want a cheaper option. 

Here is the simplest of recipes. Let me know what you think!

I am a 30 year old California native who just moved back to the state after being away for 10 years. In that time, I’ve established a career that I love and spent the last 3 years completely invested in. I absolutely love teaching high school, but I have an overwhelming sense of regret that I let my love for my students and my desire to help them take away the time I could have spent with my mom and my husband. It is for this reason, plus my overwhelming desire for adventure, that I’ve asked my husband if we could move back to my home state. I’m coming back fulfilled and confident but completely broken as I’ve now lost both parents. I’m just trying to put back the pieces as I figure out how to honor both of them while truly being happy and moving forward. I’m essentially starting fresh, as a lifelong mourner. Each day is a tribute to them and to my marriage. I feel a rush of excitement and I know that though the change is HUGE, it is going to be incredible. My dream is to laugh every day, allow myself to grieve my losses, regain my relationship with God, and build a stronger relationship with my love. Cheers to new adventures!
