BANGIN' FIRECRACKER SALMON (Gluten-free, soy-free, grain-free, dairy-free, Whole30, Keto)

I was so excited to be gifted this beautiful local-Florida salmon from Bluehouse Salmon. Yes, you read correctly... Florida USA-raised salmon (available nationwide)! My local fishmonger explained to me that the salmon swim freely in uncrowded onshore "Bluehouses" where they are fed a healthy diet free from antibiotics and hormones. I would have been sold at that, but then he also held a piece next to my usual brand and the difference in quality was immediately visible. Now, I can also happily report that the taste quality is just as unmistakable!




Let's talk about this Bangin' Firecracker sauce! On its own, it packs a wonderfully spicy flavor punch. When cooked with the salmon, it totally transforms into a dreamy, subtle heat that compliments the sweetness of the fresh salmon perfectly. Just look at that glistening yumminess!
