A fresh piece of wild salmon needs just a touch of…nothing! It really doesn’t get any easier than this. A dollop of healthy coconut oil imparts a tropical flavor and whole peppercorns give it some pop. Served with a side of blanched asparagus, it’s a balanced meal, ready in less than twenty minutes.
