Grilled Salmon with a Blueberry & Corn Salsa

Grilled Salmon with Blueberry Corn Salsa

We love salmon and I find when we can’t decide what to have for dinner, salmon is it.  It cooks up quickly and is perfect for doctoring up with fresh salsas or sauces. 

If you don’t feel confident about tossing ingredients together, honestly don’t fret! Take a look in your refrigerator to see what might be hanging out that hasn’t been used yet.  Chances are you’ll find lots of great veggies and fruit that when combined will actually taste great.

Dice them up, toss in a spritz of lime or lemon juice and a touch of olive oil and you’ve got yourself a nice salsa. It’s that simple.

I had some corn, an avocado, tomatoes, a tri-bag of small peppers and blueberries.  I thought hmm, that could work.  I added a bit of a southwest flare to the salmon by sprinkling it with some cumin and chopped cilantro – I thought it would be perfect.  However, I forgot to add my cilantro to the salsa in the end.

Oh well, it tasted great anyway!

  1. This is absolutely droolicious! Salmon and the fruity salsa…awesome combo, Vicki.

  2. Salmon is always a winner, isn’t it? Particularly at this time of the year — love the Alaskan salmon we’re getting. Fun salsa — I don’t think I’ve ever met a salsa I didn’t like.

  3. That salsa sounds like a delightful pairing with salmon. We’re currently in Alaska and I’m eating salmon at every possible opportunity!!!

  4. What a great recipe Vicki…I love salmon, but never thought in topping it with blueberry salsa…so refreshing! I love it!
