Baked Salmon with Pineapple Peach Salsa
I went to the Olive Oil Store the other day and bought Lemon Olive Oil (which I use ALL the time, but sadly ran out) and Peach Balsamic Vinegar. I liked the thought of mixing the two together in salads and was day dreaming about all of the wonderful recipes I could make with this delicious combination. I decided that I'd create something fresh and full of flavor, and this is what I came up with! I have to say that I am so impressed with myself, because this meal was incredible!
2 salmon fillets
1 T Lemon Olive Oil
1 t Peach Balsamic Vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Mix olive oil and vinegar together and use either your hands or basting brush to coat salmon. Sprinkle with s & p and bake in 350 oven for 12-15 minutes or until internal temp is 145.
While the salmon is baking, you can make your salsa. It's so simple and will probably be better after it sits for a day or so.
1 c. fresh pineapple chopped into small pieces
1 c. skin on peaches finely chopped
1/4 c. red onion finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno pepper finely chopped
handful of fresh cilantro finely chopped
1-2 T peach vinegar (to taste)
a pinch of salt
Mix everything together and let sit
Once your salmon is done, just spoon a generous amount of the salsa on top and serve. I ate mine with steamed broccoli. It would probably be good with asparagus too.
