Meyer Lemon Garlic Salmon

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “local ingredients” and my second theme was “citrus”. You know what the pacific northwest does not grow a lot of? Damn citrus. Then while researching this, I found a couple meyer lemon farms. Mix that with the fact that salmon is everywhere, I got myself a dish. Normally I do not like seasoning my salmon with too much stuff because I just like the taste of salmon but this came out incredibly good. Full of flavour, the skin cooked perfectly, and it flaked off just looking at it.
