Description

Chipotle Salmon with Fresh Corn Salsa is a flavor-packed dinner recipe! Salmon filets are dusted with a homemade, chipotle seasoning blend, seared to perfection and then topped off with a sweet, zesty corn salsa.


Ingredients

Scale
  • (4) 6 oz salmon filets
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle powder
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 3 ears of fresh corn, kernels removed
  • 10 oz cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the chipotle powder with the seasoned salt. Generously season all sides of the salmon filets with the seasoning blend. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Sear the salmon for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until desired doneness is achieved.
  2. While the salmon is cooking, combine the fresh corn kernels, tomatoes, red onion and cilantro in a medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper if desired.
  3. Serve the salmon with the fresh corn salsa over the top. Enjoy!

Notes

  • To save you even more time, you can make the fresh corn salsa a day in advance! It even gives all the flavors more time to marry together and is wonderful!
  • This recipe is a great meal-prep option. Let the salmon cool completely after searing and store in the refrigerator separate from the fresh corn salsa for a couple days.
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
