What is primavera sauce?

What is gremolata?
Gremolata is a green sauce that is typically used as a dressing or garnish. It is usually made up of chopped parsley, garlic, and lemon zest, and accompanies fish particularly well. This is where our favorite salmon comes in. Our gremolata recipe uses artichokes as well, making the perfect addition to our wild sockeye salmon. The slightly nutty and bitter flavor of artichokes compliments the bold flavor profile that our sockeye salmon has. This artichoke gremolata would be the perfect topping to any meat or fish meal, but on top of our sockeye salmon primavera? There is no comparison.
Tips for Oven Roasted Salmon
