This is one of those recipes that is not Sicilian in any way. However, a long time friend
of the family, living next door to my Grandparents, said it was her Grandfather;s favorite
fish dish and he and my Grandfather had shared many a meal of Salmon. So, I added the
recipe to the book. It is extremely tasty, and not that difficult. But alas, not Sicilian!
