Since salmon is one of my favorite foods, I try to have it at least once a week. As you know, fish can be expensive and often in too big of portions for just 1-2 people. I found the perfect solution for this! Check out your freezer section at the grocery store and you'll find bags of small fillets that are individually packaged. It's the perfect amount for 2-3 small servings, or 1 huge serving. If you're cooking for yourself, it's just the right amount for a serving at dinner and for lunch the next day, you can put the rest over a salad.
Salmon is a great source of vitamin D (especially if it's wild!), omega-3 fatty acids and protein!
Here's what you'll need for the Nectarine Salsa:
Next, brush your salmon with your favorite BBQ sause (Sweet Baby Rays is mine) and either place directly on grill or make a foil pouch like I did. Grill 15-25 minutes or until it flakes when stabbed with a fork.
Complete recipe below:
2-3 nectarines, chopped (skin on!)
2-3 ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 lime, squeezed
1 small sweet onion (or 1/2 of a larger one), chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped, seeds removed depending on your spice preference
1 handful of cilantro, chopped
1 TB honey
1 tsp olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients. Refrigerate for a couple hours or serve immediately. Spoon over your favorite grilled fish, chicken or pork. Makes about 4-5 serving.
