Monday's Leftovers: Lemony Lentil Salad With Salmon

Monday's Leftovers: Lemony Lentil Salad With Salmon

Leftover fish is one of those dishes that just doesn't re-heat well. It becomes overcooked, rubbery and the smell lingers for far too long. Yet, if you have any of last night's Lemon Butter Baked Salmon left, it would be a shame to just toss it out. This is why I've hunted down the perfect recipe. A lemony lentil salad that will work perfectly with the rest of the salmon. To check out the recipe
