Spring is finally here and there's no better way to celebrate at the dinner table than by serving salmon with seasonal ingredients like peas and fresh herbs. This recipe from Billy Dec calls for wild salmon, which is worth seeking out for its wonderful firm texture and robust flavor, not to mention its extremely high levels of heart healthy omega-3s (many stores sell high quality frozen wild salmon). Dec's recipe also calls for fresh peas, but feel free to substitute frozen peas — just cook them according to the package directions before continuing with the recipe.
