I love a good salmon recipe, and the last time I went to Whole Foods (for the wild Alaskan salmon sale), I stocked up and put quite a bit of it in the freezer. That just means it’s available when I have a craving for salmon! I picked this recipe because I wanted to do something different with salmon, and I had a few fresh ingredients I needed to use – mainly some fantastic tomatoes from my garden and some jalapenos from my Greenling (http://www.greenling.com/) order.
The verdict? This was a winner! And I think I might always make salsa on the grill from now on – it was so tasty! Definitely give this a try!
Here’s what we did:
Grilled Salmon with Smoky Tomato Salsa
From Cooking Light, Sept 2009
4 (6 ounce) skinless wild salmon fillets (I actually left the skin on, since I’m not skilled at skinning salmon!)
4 large plum tomatoes, halved
1 small red onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices (or half of a large one, if yours are gigantic)
1 jalapeno pepper, halved
1 lime, divided
1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle fillets with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Place on grill rack coated
with cooking spray, and grill for 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
2. Meanwhile, place tomatoes, onion, and jalapeño on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill tomatoes, cut side down, 6 minutes.
Turn; grill for 1 minute. Grill onion and jalapeño for 6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from grill, and cool slightly.
Serve salsa over fish. Garnish with lime wedges.
