Salmon with Lemon Caper Butter is my recipe of the day with the blogging group   Fish Friday Foodies.  We get together monthly  to post on various topics that a host suggests.

Salmon with Lemon Caper Butter

It’s my  turn to host so I suggested the topic of “Salmonchanted Evening” (as  in Some Enchanted Evening) to share salmon  recipes suitable  for a fancier dinner or date night.

I decided to do a  baked salmon filet  sprinkled  with my seafood grill seasoning which would  then be covered with a  creamy wine  and  lemon  pan sauce which is really super easy to make.

This can be  paired  with something  as easy as a wild rice mix and a tossed salad  on  the side. Which if  you are planning  a romantic dinner for two, leaves you with lots more planning time for a  dessert.

Or  you might  simply like  to have this as a family  weeknight meal.  If  you like to switch out  the  wine for kids or those who  don’t drink, the  wine can easily be subbed  with vegetable broth.
