Salmon with Sicilian Citrus

This post is also available in: Italiano

Starting from the principle that it is always necessary to let the little ones experiment with new but at the same time simple in preparation tastes and flavors, last night we experimented with this salmon in the oven with citrus fruits.

It was also an opportunity to use some kumquats (Chinese mandarins) that had been in the fruit bowl since Christmas.

We accompanied the salmon with baked potatoes, so they could cook at the same time, even if in different trays, still saves electricity and time.

 Leonardo liked the dish very much. I eat salmon willingly in all ways.

  • Add a few pieces of butter on top of the citrus slices (it will give a special taste to the sauce that will form).
