Salmón con Salsa de Alcaparras (Salmon with Capers Sauce)

This Salmon with Capers Sauce is delicious and easy enough to make as a weeknight meal. If you’re not into salmon, just use your favorite fish. This delicious sauce would be fabulous on whatever you pour it, such as chicken, turkey, tofu or pork.

I served the salmon on top of white rice with avocado salad and it made for a fantastic meal.

Buen provecho!
