This citrus and herb crusted salmon is fresh and flavorful, and the perfect spring recipe to serve at your next dinner party with all of your favorite sides.
I’ve been on a huge citrus kick lately, and love adding fresh citrus to savory recipes, like in this arugula citrus salad. This herb crusted salmon is truly the perfect spring recipe, and I can’t get enough of it!
The salmon is coated in a simple herb crust made from fresh parsley, dill, lemon and orange zest, and olive oil. It’s then topped with layers of blood orange slices and navel oranges to give it a pop of color, and baked until its perfectly flakey.
You can prepare this recipe during the week as a simple dinner, or serve it at your next dinner party. It’s the perfect Easter or Passover recipe to make for a large crowd, and can be served with nearly any side dish you like.
I love it with a fresh salad and some roasted potatoes on the side.
