Recipe: Roasted Salmon Filets with Fresh Strawberry Salsa

Serves 4

Juicy spring strawberries and buttery avocado, perked up with hint of lime, make a standout spring salsa for this quick-fix salmon. If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, you can use any oven-safe pan—just add a tablespoon or so of olive oil before adding the salmon to the pan to guarantee a smooth transition from skillet to plate.

  • 2 cups hulled and quartered strawberries
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • Zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 4 teaspoons raw honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 skin-on salmon filets
  • Avocado or olive oil cooking spray
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced (optional)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

In a small bowl, combine strawberries, onion, lime zest and juice and honey. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°. Spoon soy sauce over salmon; sprinkle evenly with salt. Spray a large cast-iron skillet with avocado oil; set heat to medium. Add the salmon to the pan, flesh side down. Cook until skin is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes . Flip salmon; transfer skillet to oven. Cook until salmon reaches desired doneness, 5 to 6 minutes more.

Just before serving, stir avocado and cilantro into salsa. Serve salsa with salmon.
