I posted this meal on my Instagram last week, and a lot of you requested the recipe. Unfortunately, I made it up…BUT, I’m going to write down what I used since it was so easy to whip up.

Strawberry Salsa Topped Salmon with Asparagus

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Salmon Filets
  • Asparagus (trimmed)
  • 5-6 Strawberries
  • 1 Yellow Pepper
  • 1 Shallot
  • 1 Lime, zested then juiced
  • 1 Lemon, half juiced, half sliced into 1/8″ slices
  • 1/2 an avocado, preferably a little firm a.k.a. not quite ripe
  • Cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Olive Oil
  • Grassfed Butter
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat your oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with foil, and place your salmon fillets on top. Rub with olive oil, salt and pepper, then lay lemon slices on top until you’ve covered each piece. Top the lemon slices with a few dollops of butter. Bake 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your fillets. I like to pull them out of the oven with a touch of dark pink left and tent them in foil to rest. By the time you serve, they will be perfect!

While the salmon is baking, prepare the salsa. I used equal parts peppers and strawberries, probably about 1/4-1/2 cup each. Chop the strawberries, peppers, and avocado about the same size and add to a mixing bowl. Finely dice a shallot and add as much as you like. I only used half the shallot once it was diced (it depends on the size, mine was HUGE). Add your lime zest, juice, and cilantro to taste. Stir gently to combine, then add salt and pepper if desired.

Set the salsa aside and prepare your asparagus by trimming the rough ends off. I totally buy the pre-packed trimmed kind because I’m lazy. Heat some olive oil in a saute pan and add the asparagus. These cook quickly, so make sure to keep tossing and checking for al dente – it takes about 5 minutes or so on medium high heat. Finish with a couple tablespoons of grassfed butter and a squeeze of lemon, salt, and pepper.

This meal is SIMPLE yet beautifully impressive to serve family or guests. Not a fan of strawberries? Swap them for mango, blueberries, or pineapple. This fruit salsa is also yummy on chicken or other types of fish. If you give it a try, let me know!
