Dress Up Your Salmon with a Seasonal Salsa
Posted by : Wild For Salmon /
One of the most beautiful features of flash-frozen, wild Alaskan salmon is the incredible flavor that's preserved in each product - be it salmon fillets, portions, burgers, and more. With hardly any additional preparation, you can enjoy a palette-pleasing and healthy meal, just like that.
However, as warmer weather rolls into town this time of year in Pennsylvania, we love a homemade salsa to pair with grilled salmon. Pineapples aren't local to PA but they're in season through Spring and should NOT be passed up. So juicy and tangy this time of year, they team up beautifully with local rhubarb, strawberries, and fresh cilantro, to make a killer salsa.
We adapted the recipe below from the kitchen and you can essentially add fruits or vegetables that are fresh in your area, chop, season, and enjoy to your heart's content. Load it atop a salmon fillet or portion hot off the grill and add a side salad or grilled seasonal vegetable, too. Then relax and dig in!
2 cups diced rhubarb (about 8 ounces)
1 cup diced pineapple
1 cup diced strawberries
1/2 cup mashed strawberry & pineapple
Zest of 1 medium lime
Juice of 2 medium limes (about 1/4 cup)
1 medium jalapeño, very finely chopped (remove the seeds for less heat)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
