1. Pan Fried Salmon with Citrus Vinaigrette (total cook time- about 45 minutes)

This healthy meal features one of the Emerald Isle's staple foods— Salmon. (It also happens to be one of my favorite foods as well.) Plus, this recipe is a perfect use for all of that citrus being forced on you by friends and family with fruit trees in their back yards.

What you'll need: asparagus, extra-virgin olive oil, fresh orange juice, fresh lemon juice, fresh lime juice, shallots, chives, Salt and freshly ground pepper, vegetable oil and, most importantly, skinless salmon fillets
