Salmon is a firm fish that makes perfect “steaks” for any preparation. This recipe features a mouthwatering sauce of pureed sorrel, walnuts, garlic, bread, and savory spices. After the salmon is quickly broiled in the oven, it will be golden and fork-tender. Serve it with a side of the flavorful sorrel sauce.
