Tzatziki Salmon Recipe

This Tzatziki Salmon is our way of saying weeknight meal without saying weeknight meal. Because weeknight meal sounds like a sad little crockpot offering to the insatiable workday gods. You can get excited for this meal any day of the week. You don’t have to negotiate with the assistant’s assistant to the Chancellor of HR to get extra PTO to prepare Tzatziki Salmon. You don’t have to activate an Out-of-Office auto-reply for that micromanaging client three time zones behind you. Just make it because you want to make it.
