This is an exquisite way of preparing a perfect Salmon filet with a different flair. The persimmon was a beautiful companion to the wonderful taste of Sockeye. We served it with a tasty mushroom and leek medley, but you can pair this dish with some of our other side dishes such as, Ensalada de Agucate y Tomate, Leek, or a wonderful squash. Either way you will surely love this infused, ultra light and delicious version 0f Salmon.
This serves 2 hungry Svendblads. 🙂 after a workout and a mountain bike ride.
