Directions

  1. Combine all the spices in a small bowl. Squeeze lime juice over salmon then rub in the spices to completely coat; set aside to rest about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and sauté 2 minutes; add beans, corn and salt and cook until heated through, about 6 - 8 minutes. Remove from heat and toss in cilantro and lime juice. Makes 3 1/2 cups.
  3. Heat a clean outdoor grill (make sure the grates are clean and lightly oiled) or if cooking indoors a lightly oiled grill pan over high heat. When hot, grill the salmon for about 5 minutes on each side or until the fish is opaque throughout. Serve with black beans, corn and lime wedges.
