imageSalmon with Spicy Cucumber-Pineapple Salsa Recipe:


2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Kirby cucumbers, finely diced
1 cup finely diced fresh pineapple (about of a whole pineapple)
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno chile (ribs and seeds removed), minced
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
coarse salt and ground pepper
4 skin-on salmon fillets (6 to 8 ounces each), patted dry


1. In a medium bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey, and 1 tablespoon oil; add cucumbers, pineapple, scallions, jalapeno, and basil. Season with salt and pepper; toss gently to combine.

2. Generously season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat remaining tablespoon oil over medium-high; add salmon, skin side down. Cook until skin is crispy and salmon is opaque about 3/4 of the way through, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn salmon over, and continue to cook just until opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve salmon topped with salsa. (courtesy of
