Summer's Here (Broiled Salmon with Fresh Tomato Salsa)

As I sit here with this cool breeze coming through my kitchen window, I can't believe it's really Summer, which means almost half the year is gone already and I feel like I haven't seen it go by. Always hurrying to do one thing or another, and of course, not being able to do everything I want to do. Is it just me?

If you do have time to sit down and enjoy a meal, as we did this past Sunday, on Father's Day, this would be the dish to prepare. So easy and adaptable, you might just be able to squeeze in a walk to your favorite park, all in the same day!

Broiled Salmon with Fresh Tomato Salsa

This is a great recipe if you're like me and you just can't follow a recipe! Adapt the quantities and spices and herbs as you wish and make this perfect for you.

Salmon fillets, bones removed
Olive oil
Lime juice
Garlic cloves, minced
Coriander powder
Salt and pepper

Red onions, chopped
Olive oil
Lime juice
Parsley, chopped

Preheat your broiler and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place your salmon fillets, skin side down on the prepared sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and lime juice, then sprinkle with the chopped garlic. Add as much coriander powder, salt and pepper as you like. Broil the fillets for about 10 minutes, until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

While the salmon is broiling, prepare your salsa. Chop up a large tomato, or a few smaller ones, removing some of the seeds so it's not too watery. Add some chopped red onions, a drizzle of olive oil and lime juice and some parsley. When the salmon is cooked, remove it from the oven, scatter the salsa on top of the fillets and put it back under the broiler for a few minutes, just to warm the salsa. Serve with some rice and a crunchy green salad on the side.
