Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Wild salmon can have a leaner flesh and may take less time to cook than the fattier farm-raised salmon.
  • tip 2
    If you’d like to add a little heat to the cilantro-lime sauce, add 1 teaspoon finely chopped serrano chile.
  • tip 3
    Sautéed corn and cherry tomatoes make a lovely accompaniment to this dish.
