1 small red bell pepper

4 (4-ounce) skinless salmon fillets
1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

Preparation

Cut first 4 ingredients into thin strips, and set aside.

Broil 6 inches from heat 10 to 13 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.

Whisk together jelly, next 4 ingredients, and, if desired, dill.
