Salmon with Shrimp Sauce (Salmón con Salsa de Camarones)

Salmon with Shrimp Sauce

This week, for lunch, I made this Salmon with Shrimp Sauce for my sister and she just loved it! As I’ve mentioned, my sister is visiting from Colombia and one of the things I love about having her here is that we share the same enthusiasm about food. We are having a great time together and a lot of my childhood memories are coming back including many of our favorite dishes that we shared growing up together. I will make all of those dishes for everyone soon :) so keep coming back for more recipes!

    This was a wonderfully simple recipe and so delicious. The cumin in the sauce was really nice against the paprika on the fish. Yummy!
