Salmon Piccata

Salmon piccata is a play of the classic chicken piccata. Lemon’s, white wine, capers, parsley and butter. The sauce is a dance party in your mouth. If you haven’t tried capers before, these little berries are sure to give you a nice bright flavor the same way an olive would.

This dish is one of those quick meals we all love after a busy work day or week. Only a few ingredients, some quick chopping of vegetables and dinner is ready on the table with a nice glass of wine.
