Herb Crusted Salmon Recipe: Seaside Symphony

So, tonight’s the night—well, not a date night, just a cozy dinner with a friend. And with the weather being just right, I think it’s the perfect excuse to whip up something special. You know how it is when the ambiance is perfect!

I’ve been on a bit of a meat spree lately, so I decided to go for something healthier this time while still getting that protein fix. I’m thinking about salmon.

I’ve done the Honey Glazed Salmon before, but tonight, I’m feeling something fresher like a little herb to elevate the dish – Herb Crusted Salmon with a touch of dill. For the drink, I decided to go with Bellini – a perfect peach cocktail.

So, wish me luck, and here’s salmon with a herb crust recipe – a fantastic dinner!
