Sunday Suppers with Lunchbox Love – Cilantro Lime Butter Salmon

Ok, I expect some feedback on this post! Do your children eat fish? Mine do. They love haddock, mussels, shrimp, LOBSTER, clams… It’s so surprising! And the newest fish for my oldest son is Salmon. He loves it. I mean he wants to bring it in his lunchbox to school! I really haven’t branched out with new recipes for the fish but it’s time I do! Please share your recipes if you have some tried and true ones!
