A delicious recipe that came from a newspaper clipping!
- 1 small ripe pear
- 1⁄2 red bell pepper
- 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- olive oil flavored cooking spray
- 3⁄4 lb salmon fillet
- Core pear (do not peel) and cut into 1/2-inch pieces over a bowl to catch the juice; Add pieces to the bowl.
- Seed bell pepper and cut into 1/2-inch pieces; add to the bowl.
- Add the jalapeño, cumin, lime juice, cilantro and salt and pepper to taste.
- Toss well and set aside.
- Heat a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat and spray with olive oil.
- Add the salmon fillet.
- For a 1-inch-thick fillet, sauté 4 minutes, turn and sauté 4 more minutes.
- Season cooked sides with salt and pepper.
- Transfer salmon to dinner plates; top with salsa.
This is really good. Prepare yourself, though... that one lone jalapeno pepper adds some serious heat for some reason!
Yummy! Very easy and quick to prepare on a week night. I made extra salsa and served over white rice.
