Peach salsa recipe on baked salmon is the perfect summertime meal

As the salmon fisheries continue to produce some fairly good fishing along the coast, Strait of Juan de Fuca and clear into Puget Sound, I’d like to point out a refreshing salmon recipe to beat the summer time heat. OK well the heat will hopefully arrive soon in the Pacific Northwest to get that persistent moss of our backs, but this salmon dish works well in all kinds of weather.

Salmon fillets with Peach Salsa

Ingredients

Four 8 to 10 ounce salmon fillets

Sea salt and cracked black pepper

Olive oil

Three to four firm yellow peaches

1/3 cup of red bell peppers

1/3 cup of green bell peppers

1/3 cup of red onions

1/3 cup of fresh cilantro

1/3 cup of green onions

Two jalapenos

1 teaspoon of sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Drizzle olive oil on salmon fillets coating both sides.

Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

Place salmon on roasting pan and bake for 10 to 13 minutes depending on thickness of the salmon or until cooked through.

Salsa preparation

Peel skin from peaches and finely chop into tiny pieces. Finely dice red and green bell peppers and red onions.

Chop cilantro and green onions, and mince jalapenos (remove seeds for a mild taste).

To prepare salsa combine all ingredients in a bowl along with the sugar, and chill for two hours. The salsa can be used with a variety of other fish as well.

Once salmon is finished place on plate, and then top with peach salsa. Good side dishes are mixed vegetables or a rice pilaf.
