Buffalo Salmon

I promise we do eat food other than salmon. It just always seems to be on sale at the store, and I have a never ending supply of recipes I've been wanting to try out! This week it was Buffalo Salmon...


This recipe was SO good. I've been craving chicken wings but not allowing myself to give in since vacation is just one week away (yay!)...so this dish helped! We had it with Blue Cheese Tomatoes since every one knows you can't have wings without blue cheese. And don't worry if you don't like your wings too spicy...the butter and hot sauce combo really cuts down on the heat!

4. Put salmon, skin side down, in baking pan and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, then brush with remaining sauce.
