Roasted Salmon with Tomatillo—Red Onion Salsa

Roasted Salmon with Tomatillo—Red Onion SalsaRecipe
Oxmoor House
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.


4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, 1/4 cup salsa, and 1 lemon wedge)
