Notes

Suggestions for substitutions in this salmon skillet recipe:
  • Swap out Norwegian salmon for another seafood from Norway selection such as Norwegian cod or Norwegian Fjord trout.
  • Mix in other vegetables like spinach or greens.
  • Use canned tomatoes in place of fresh tomatoes.
  • Swap out rice for cauliflower rice for a low carb salmon skillet.
