Grilled Salmon With Citrus Salsa

Tonight we were craving fish, but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to cook it. After reading a few recipes, I decided grilled salmon topped with a fresh salsa would fill the bill. This recipe is based on one by Giada De Laurentis. It's very impressive and deceptively easy. When I got to the store, bourbon-marinated salmon fillets were on sale. The sweetness of the salmon paired well with the smoky char from the grill pan. The salsa is bright, flavorful, and perfectly balanced. I served the fish with Sweet Potato Latkes. Enjoy!

1. Sprinkle salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Place on hot grill pan, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Top with salsa just before serving.

Citrus Salsa:

2 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
