Quick Southwest Salmon Dinner

KristineDinner in a Dash, Recipes1 Comment

A sweet and savory way to make salmon, with a southwest kick!  The black bean and corn salad goes great with the sweet & spicy glaze on the salmon.

Makes approx 3-4 servings

Fillet of Atlantic Salmon or any Wild Salmon
1 can of black bean rinsed
1 can of salt free corn, rinsed
1/2 Tbsp honey
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 a red bell pepper, chopped
2 Tbsp adobe sauce (optional)
Cilantro, chopped

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees (on bake). Place salmon on broiler rack & cover with honey & adobo sauce. Cook for approx 15-20 minutes or until done to your liking. Warning: adobo sauce is quite spicy, so you can omit and just put the honey.

Meanwhile make the side dish—drain the cans of black beans & corn & rinse well. Place in a bowl along with the chopped red pepper and chopped cilanto and chili powder. Mix together.
