Lemon Caper Salmon


We live a long way from a stream where wild Salmon are running and wild Salmon are the catch of the day. Most of the Salmon we have is frozen and occasionally we will have fresh Salmon, but it is very expensive. The Salmon that I am using for this recipe today was frozen wild Salmon. I love this recipe with a great marinade of lemons and caper's that goes on top of the fillets to make this flavorful fish. This is a very simple, healthy recipe and for us a very special meal.
