Roasted Salmon with Tomatillo—Red Onion Salsa

Oxmoor House
Prep time 3 mins
Cook time 20 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, 1/4 cup salsa, and 1 lemon wedge)
Although they look like small green tomatoes, tomatillos, also known as husk tomatoes, are actually related to gooseberries. In this recipe, their tart-yet-subtle apple and lemon-like flavors cut the richness of the salmon. Remove the papery skin from the tomatillos, wash them well, and pat them dry before chopping them. Round out your meal with fresh corn on the cob.

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
