The 5 ingredients:
4 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets
4 large plum tomatoes, halved
1 small red onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 jalapeño pepper, halved
1 lime, divided
How to Make It
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. 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. Coarsely chop tomatoes and onion; finely chop jalapeño. Combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and juice from 1/2 lime. Serve salsa over fish. Garnish with lime wedges.
I used Arctic char, and it was delicious. Very simple, and small portions, which suited us perfectly. I eliminated the seeds from the jalapeño, but went easy on the salt. Probably could have used touch more salt. Overall, a keeper for spring and summer menus.
We thought the picture looked lovely so we bought salmon and used some homegrown tomatoes to make the salsa. We rarely try a recipe from Cooking Light that we don't like, but we were very disappointed. We didn't care for the cooked tomatoes on the salmon.
