27 Nov 2017 Salsa Salmon
This is a great, tasty, different and easy way to prepare salmon. As it’s fun and unique, the kids love it too.
Place salmon fillets (I use boneless, skinless fillets of salmon) in a foil pan (or in an oven safe baking dish, if you prefer and don’t mind a pan to wash).
Top each fillet with a couple of spoons of chunky salsa (I use Ortega brand, Homestyle, Medium Salsa), spreading the salsa over the length of the fish, to coat the fillet.
Drizzle each piece with a small amount of maple syrup (remember, as I previously noted, it’s the salt of my kitchen!), and a spritz of lemon juice. Top each piece with a sprinkling of: garlic, onion and mustard powders.
If you have time, allow the salmon to marinate in the dressing for 15 minutes or so. This is not essential, if you are pressed for time.
Bake the salmon on 350*, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, till cooked through to desired doneness. This depends on how well done you like your salmon, and how thick your pieces of fish are.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
For a complete and themed meal, serve the salmon alongside a Green Salad made of: lettuce (or greens of your choice), chopped tomatoes, diced cucumbers, corn niblets, and avocado, dressed with Caesar dressing. Add in crushed tortilla chips immediately before serving.
Enjoy and happy cooking,
