Salmon is definitely our favourite source of protein to enjoy in the summer! There are endless different sauces that can be lathered over salmon to give it an amazing flavour, but this cilantro lime sauce is one of our go-to sauces right now. This recipe is quick & easy to whip up but has super bright flavours, making it perfect for a summer meal. We served our salmon with crispy roasted potatoes and a simple salad! If you need something delicious but not time-consuming to make this weekend, SAVE this recipe!
