>Salmon with Tomato-Peach Salsa

>Making fish at home is sometimes scary.  For me anyway.  I like fish, but I don’t love fish.  Do ya feel me?  I know it’s good for me, so I make a good attempt to include it in my diet in regular intervals.  However…if I have some “bad” fish (hello Sublime fans) then I don’t want fish for a while.  Hence why I am scared to make fish at home!


How to prevent bad fish?  Buy quality fish.  Have a Grill King cook it to perfection.  And if all else fails – top it with a lot of stuff!

This recipe came from the cover of Cooking Light Magazine.  I am a subscriber.  Holla.  It was very easy to make and the ingredients were not too expensive.  When I make it again I plan to cut my ingredients smaller and add more herbs!!!


Salmon with Tomato-Peach Salsa
Ingredients:

  • 1 chopped peach
  • 3/4 cup quartered tomatoes (I used grape)
  • 1/4 cup sliced red onion
  • 3 T fresh mint
  • 3T fresh basil
  • 2T fresh lemon juice
  • 1T EVOO
  • 1T honey
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (I used a Mexibell from my garden)
  • 1t salt
  • salmon
Tomato-Peach Salsa
Method:
  • Preheat the grill to high
  • Combine all ingredients except salmon in a bowl.  Use only 1/4t salt
  • Sprinkle the salmon with the remaining salt and black pepper
  • Place on a grill rack coated with cooking spray

  1. >yum! i just made a salsa SO similar to this except it had avocado in it.

  2. >We made this for dinner tonight it was delicious! We didn't have red onions so used white and didn't have jalapenos so used a random red pepper. It was delicious – thanks for sharing!

  3. >I like how these fruit salsas are so versatile! I have a recipe for an all sweet fruit salsa that I want to try with cinnamon pita chips…I'm just afraid I won't be able to stop eating pita chips!
