Cooking 101: Pinterest Culinary School

Another Pinterest win on the books. This one was even a single serve (easily scale-able for Sunday night dinners) but with having my freezer stocked with Costco salmon- this was an easy, quick and delicious meal.

I swear that Pinterest has become my cooking 101 class! I have had more success with Pinterest recipes than I have ever had in my life!

Anyways. Make this salmon. Paired with some rice, sauteed spinach, it was the perfect post-workout dinner!
