Recipe Ingredients for Salmon with Ginger Salsa

1/3 pound salmon fillet, cut in half
2 teaspoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed
1 sea salt to taste
1 pepper to taste
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup green onions, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
2 teaspoons fresh mint, minced
1 teaspoon lime juice, fresh squeezed
2 teaspoons olive oil, opeional

Recipe Directions for Salmon with Ginger Salsa

  1. To Quick-Broil: Preheat broiler and place an all stainless steel skillet (be sure handle is also stainless steel) or cast iron pan under the heat for about 10 minutes to get it very hot. The pan should be 5 to 7 inches from the heat source.

  2. Rub salmon with 2 teaspoons lemon juice, salt and pepper. (You can Quick Broil with the skin on; it just takes a minute or two longer. The skin will peel right off after cooking.)

  3. Using a hot pad, pull pan away from heat and place salmon on hot pan, skin side down. Return to broiler. Keep in mind that it is cooking rapidly on both sides so it will be done very quickly, usually in 7 minutes depending on thickness. Test with a fork for doneness. It will flake easily when it is cooked. Salmon is best when it is still pink inside.

  4. Salsa: Combine all diced tomato, green onions, ginger, and mint, lime juice. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.

  5. Spoon salsa over salmon and garnis with mint and a sprinkle of extra virgin olive oil.
