Lime & Cilantro Salmon with Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa

Lime & Cilantro Salmon with Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa

This may be my new favorite salmon dish. It’s perfect for the summer using fresh ingredients and delicious wild-caught Sockeye salmon. I mixed butter with a bit of lime juice, minced garlic, and chopped cilantro then rubbed it all over the salmon. I cooked it in a hot oven for a short time so it was medium rare and perfectly cooked. I grilled some corn in my grill pan then seasoned it and the diced tomatoes, and avocado with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper and spooned it over the salmon. I served this dish with extra lime wedges and fresh cilantro – it was a HUGE hit with all of us, although, my son opted for no avocado because he’s not a fan (except for guacamole – go figure). My husband and I were thrilled with how this turned out and I can’t wait to make it again. I served this salmon with my Garlic Rice and Asparagus with Garlic and Lime.

How to Make Lime & Cilantro Salmon with Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa

Heat your grill pan over medium-high heat then add the corn on the cob and cook for about 12-14 minutes, making sure to turn to evenly cook all sides. Remove from the grill and let cool. Once cool, cut the kernels from the ears of corn with a knife.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then coat it with cooking spray.

Combine the butter, minced garlic, cilantro, and juice from 1/2 a lime together then spread evenly over the top of the fish. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Place skin side down on the prepared baking sheet.
