Scale

Ingredients

FOR THE SALMON:

  • 1.5 lb. wild salmon fillet
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

FOR THE STRAWBERRY SALSA:

  • 1.5 cups diced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp. diced jalapeƱo
  • 2 Tbsp. diced green onion
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

FOR THE SALMON:

  1. Heat oven to 375 F.
  2. Place salmon fillet on a baking sheet and use a pastry brush to brush it with a few coats of balsamic vinegar. Reserve the rest of the balsamic for later. Season salmon with a dash of salt and pepper.
  3. Bake salmon for 15-20 minutes until cooked to your desired level of doneness. For well done fish, you may need to add a couple of extra minutes in the oven.
  4. When salmon is cooked, brush a bit of the remaining balsamic vinegar over the top. Top salmon with strawberry salsa and serve immediately.

FOR THE STRAWBERRY SALSA:

  1. Combine strawberries, cilantro, jalapeƱo, green onion, lime juice in a medium bowl.
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Store salsa in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.

Notes

Cooking time may vary depending on the size/shape of your filet and the level of doneness you like – I like my salmon not quite well done. Start checking your salmon around the 10 minute mark if you’re worried about cook time. I

You can easily make this salsa a day or two ahead of time – just store it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat!

Use sustainably fished Wild Alaskan Salmon for this recipe – we like King or Sockeye salmon with this salsa!

Serve with some parmesan spinach gnocchi, easy crusty French bread, or lemon herb pasta!
