Summer may be winding down, but we’re not quite ready for fall just yet. To that end, we’ve got a recipe that’s a little bit of fun in the sun and a little bit of autumnal adventure. On the brighter side are sustainable salmon fillets from Blue Circle Foods, which are drizzled in a cheerful lemon sauce. Meanwhile, ingredients like apple, pecan, and the full-bodied spices in our Turkish blend take it toward the deeper flavor profile associated with changing leaves and sweater weather.
