Salmon with Strawberry and Tomato Salsa

Another savory recipe for you guys today. I saw this recipe on Katie’s blog not too long ago and was completely intrigued. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Katie’s blog, be sure to do so. She’s got some great recipes and party menu ideas over there.

I would have never thought to pair salmon and strawberries. Or tomatoes and strawberries. But it really works. I made this while Hubby was out of town and really enjoyed eating this meal and it was great left over as well.


The strawberries and tomatoes pair together nicely. The green onions in the salsa provide a nice crunch. The directions that Katie gave to broil the salmon result in a delicious salmon. I’ll definitely be using that method for salmon cooking in the future.


I didn’t serve this over rice like Katie suggests, I just ate it as-is. After seeing the pics, Hubby is jealous that I didn’t make this when he was home. Lucky for him it was delicious and we will be having this again soon!

Salmon with Strawberry and Tomato Salsa

Yield: 4

Ingredients:

4 salmon fillets
juice of half of a lemon
salt and pepper to taste

1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and diced
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
4 scallions, white and light green portion diced
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp olive oil
drizzle of honey
dash of salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat broiler on low. Line baking sheet with tin foil, folding edges upwards to contain mess.

Squeeze fresh lemon juice onto tops of each fillet and generously season each with salt and pepper. Place on the bottom rack of the oven (away from broiler) and broil on low to desired doneness, about 10 minutes dependent upon thickness of fillets.

Meanwhile, prep remaining salsa ingredients and combine in medium bowl. Stir to combine and let sit.

Remove salmon from oven and let rest 5 minutes. Using small spatula or fork, remove salmon from skin (skin should stick to the tinfoil and be easy to remove) and place on plate.

Top generously with strawberry and tomato salsa and serve hot

    Mmm I love jam, and this looks great for strawberry season! I unfortunately don’t like blueberries — would you adjust the other ingredients if you minus them? Also where do you get canning jars? Yay, fun summer project!

    yumventures – You can def leave the blueberries out. Follow the link through to Ina’s original recipe. It doesn’t have blueberries in it. The comments on the Food Network website did say that it was a bit sweet with the sugar listed in the recipe, so keep that in mind.

    I’ve never made homemade jam before…but wow this sure does look delicious!

    It would be great in some thumbprint cookies or linzer cookies…yumm.

    Oh, this looks wonderful! I’ve never made jam before but it’s on my list of things to try, this looks like the perfect way to get started. I love berry combos like this. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    Does this recipe require pectin? I’ve heard that pectin is found naturally in raspberries so you don’t need it for that kind of jam, but wasn’t sure if it applied to strawberry as well. I am new to making jam but am excited to try!

    Hey there.. I have done your strawberry/blueberry jam, and I’m tellin ya,, it was sooooo goooood. Not too sweet either. My problem was, it never would really thicken, and I checked it on a saucer I kept in the freezer. It remained runny,, but ohh sooo good. I gave it away to family and they loved it. I’m just preparing to do more,, fingers crossed, I do hope it gets a little thicker this time. If I were to put the slightest amount of pectin I’m wondering what would happen?????? I noticed this posting is from 2010

      I think a little bit of pectin could help thicken the jam. If you try it, I’d love to know how it turns out.
