Salmon with Plum & Mango Salsa.

These last couple of weeks have been busy! I've been cooking, but not writing. Time get caught up. This was tonight's dinner - an easy preparation that keeps your kitchen cool and is a great combination of warm fish and cool salsa. Enjoy! (Please ignore the funky formatting below. Blogger is not behaving tonight...)

Plum & Mango Salsa
  • 2 plums, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped mango
  • 2 T chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

Grilled Salmon
  • salmon filets, skin on
  • olive oil
  • salt

Gently toss salsa ingredients together and chill until ready to serve.

For grilled salmon, heat grill to a medium high to high temperature.  Drizzle olive oil over salmon and sprinkle lightly with salt. Place fish skin side down on grill and close cover.  Cook for 4 to 5  minutes. As soon as you see the fat start to bubble out of the fish, turn the fish over and cook one more minute (to get nice grill marks!).  The skin should peel off easily – and is often easy to do right on the grill.  Peel away skin and remove fish from grill.

Serve with salsa and enjoy.
