- Small White Onion* diced
- Large Tomato* diced
- 3 Cloves Fresh Garlic**diced
- Canola Oil
- Fresh Farm-free Salmon
- Ground Black Pepper
The secret of the simplicity is an indoor grill pan*** A cast iron pan like mine heats up slowly, but retains and transfers heat beautifully. Just brush the pan with a little canola oil (it has a higher smoking point, so is better than olive oil at higher temperatures), rub cracked black pepper into the salmon fillet and let sear about 2 minutes on each side.
With all of the leftover delicious omega 3′s and salmon bits in the pan, you are ready to toss in diced onion, garlic and tomato. Season with a pinch of salt to help bring out the flavor and tender up the veggies quick. Move them around in the pan for about 1-2 minutes and then pile the fresh grilled salsa right on top of the salmon.
Throw together some simple quesadillas for carbohydrates and enjoy!

** Garlic can be eaten in two forms-either freshly picked, or aged. Usually in the store you get the great aged cloves with flaky skins. My local csa provided me the chance to eat some FRESH this week-it was delicious, with a more creamy, mild garlic flavor. I’ve loved it!
***This meal can be made without a grill pan, either sear the fish in a fry pan or on a bb-q. The salsa can be made in a hot fry pan.
