Nori Wrapped Salmon

You don’t have to be making sushi to have fun with nori wraps! Nori is a mineral dense sea vegetable that adds flavor and texture to a dish, and in this recipe it helps protect the salmon from drying out during cooking. Call me crazy but I love to eat the leftovers (cold) for breakfast.
