Doesn’t this salsa look refreshing? Baked or grilled salmon and fruit salsas are a people-pleasing combination. I believe it’s because a sweet and spicy salsa can stand up to the distinctive taste of salmon.
You’ll find this simple fruit salsa is quick to pull together. Be sure to let it sit for a few minutes to allow those wonderful flavors to blend while you bake your salmon.
I’m a big fan of wild Alaskan salmon. Costco sells a brand of frozen wild salmon that is fresh, affordable and packaged in individual portions. Perfect for us waistline watching folks!
I hope you enjoy this simple Sunday supper. With the time you save in the kitchen, maybe you can relax before we start another week!
