21DF | Lemon Thyme Salmon

My favorite dinner thus far! Add this into your line-up immediately, if you’re a fan of these ingredients.
Salmon
Lemon & Thyme
Tomato
Fresh Basil
Fresh Mozzarella (Skim/low moisture or whatever) 😉
Balsamic Reduction

We cooked our salmon the bbq, because the sun came out and we forgot that it was April. It was so easy! Season your salmon with a tsp of olive oil and whatever fresh herbs/citrus you want – we did lemon slices, and fresh sprigs of thyme. And, salt + pepper of course! Then, place it on the grill skin side down, until the fish starts to flake and the white/clear “fat” starts to emerge from the meat. Make sense?
For the Caprese salad, slice tomatoes and mozzarella into medallions. Layer tomato, mozzarella and basil in an alternating pattern, and then drizzle with balsamic reduction. You can make your own reduction by simmering balsamic vinegar over low, low heat until it reduces by half… takes a century, but it’s delicious. OR, you can be lazy like me and go to your local gourmet grocery store and buy an amazing pre-made/pure/no sugar added reduction.
I’m just being honest, here. It’s a no-brainer for me.
