Recipe

Chiles love salmon—they add just the right accent to flavor the salmon to its greatest dimension. Fruity salsa, spiked with chiles, adds just the right complement.

Yield: 2 servings
Cooking time: 6 To 10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon ground mild red chile
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • ¾ pound fresh salmon filet, deboned
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (optional)
  • 1 cup Sweet Pear Pineapple Salsa, use about ½ recipe

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the chile, sugar, and salt. Cut the salmon into 2 pieces. Rinse, then pat dry with a paper towel. Rub the chile mixture evenly over the salmon.

Sprinkle salt in a heavy, seasoned skillet (or an unseasoned skillet to which you have added the oil). Place over medium-high heat until hot.

Sauté the salmon for 3 to 5 minutes per side, until crisp and brown on the outside and still moist and bright pink on the inside. Serve on a pool of salsa.
