Please pardon me if I bore you with my seafood entries, or yet my salmon recipes. Salmon, you must have noticed is a favorite fish of mine. I probably like it because it is very mild in taste. The meat melts in your mouth if cooked perfectly, and it accompanies any seasonings or garnishes. Well since I had purchased a whole basket of fresh peaches at the beginning of the week and did not want them to go to waste, I thought it would be kind of nice to have a peach salsa to accompany my salmon tonight.
Ingredients: 1/2 of a small purple onion diced very very thinly, 1/2 of a green, 1/2 of a red, and 1/2 of a yellow bell pepper also died very thinly, 2 peaches peeled and diced very thinly too, 2 tbsp of chopped mint, 1/4 tsp of lemon pepper salt, 1 tbsp of honey. 1 salmon filet, honey, lemon pepper, and salt to taste.
Turn your oven to 350. While the oven is warming up, prepare the salsa. In a large bowl, place all the diced vegetables, the diced peaches, mint, 1/4 tsp of lemon pepper and mix well. Add 1 tbsp of honey and stir again. You may add some salt, but I thought it tasted fine as it. If you wanted to spice up the salsa, you could add a few drops of tabasco sauce and add 1 tsp of red pepper flakes, but I don’t care for spicy food so did not..Set aside.
Place your salmon on a silpat. Drizzle 1 tbsp of honey on it, and spray it with a baking brush. Sprinkle lemon pepper and sea salt all over the salmon and bake for 8 minutes or less depending on the size of your fish. ( for an individual piece, you may need to cook it for 5 minutes, and 15 minutes for 8-10 people).
To serve, place salsa over the salmon et voila!!!
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
