Zucchini season is among us once again. And I love it. Anything that is so simple to prepare yet tastes so delicious is aces in my book.
Which reminds me…I need to raid my uncle’s garden…
This dish was an amazing 10 minute creation that I could probably eat twice a week. Frank loved it too. It would also taste great with lemon, but I used lime since that’s what I had. And really, does it get any healthier than this?
Pan Fried Lime Salmon with Zucchini

In same pan, place salmon in leftover oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 4 minutes on one side and flip. Add more salt and pepper, then squeeze lime juice over it. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve on top of zucchini.
