I do believe that I’ve mentioned a time or two that the hubby loves salmon. I probably have more salmon recipes listed than almost any other type of protein.  This is why I was very excited when ZayconFresh made salmon a part of their line up. The hubby and I bought a box when it became available in our area and I’ve cooked him a couple of meals. I’m planning a few other things and I’ll share them as I make them. One of my favorite ways to prepare his salmon is cooking en papillote; it never fails to present a delicious, well cooked piece of fish.

It also looks very festive, doesn’t it? Not that it’s a holiday only dish! The hubby really enjoyed it. He liked the combination of the sweet onions and peppers with the tart pomegranates on the rich fish. He loves when I cook his salmon this way because he says it’s always moist and delicious.

ZayconFresh has so many different options for your freezer. I’ve been so happy with everything I’ve gotten from them. I think the bacon wrapped pork is next! Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed. If you do, please use my referral link: https://zayconfresh.com/refer/zf237258 I appreciate it!
