what you need
  • 3 salmon fillets
  • 3 cups liquid margarita mix
  • 2 shots of tequila
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • 1 tsp. chives
  • Zest and juice of 2 limes
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
make it
Place salmon fillets in a casserole dish. Pour liquid margarita mix and tequila over salmon fillets. Sprinkle with parsley and chives. Pour zest and juice of one lime over fillets. Marinate overnight or for as long as possible.

Preheat oven to broil at 450 degrees F. Mix sour cream, parsley, chives, salt and pepper and zest and juice of second lime to make the cream sauce.

Melt butter in a saucepan. Pour out half of the margarita mix so there is a shallow layer of liquid just covering the salmon fillets. Broil for 8 minutes, basting the tops of the fillets with melted butter every 2 minutes.

After 8 minutes remove and plate fillets. Spread cream sauce over fillets. Serve over a bed of brown rice.
