Zesty Chipotle Lime Salmon

Salmon is makes a great, nutritious dinner any time of year, but we particularly love it in the summer. Whether we bake it or grill it, you never need more than a handful of ingredients to enhance all of its tasty, natural flavor, and here we took things in a zesty direction, with fresh limes and chipotle powder. The citrus perfectly balances out the smoky chipotle, so you get the best of both worlds, plus, it’s ridiculously easy to prepare, so you can get a healthy dinner on the table in no time – win-win!
