In an effort to cook more fish for dinner, I experimented with some fresh Salmon and fresh Jalapeno peppers to create this delicious Sweet Jalapeno Salmon recipe.  The combination of sweet and spicy complimented the salmon perfectly and I was able to have this dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes!  A great side dish for this recipe is my Jalapeno Brown Rice which is packed with flavor and is perfect as a bed of rice for the salmon.
