Salmon with Corn and Pepper Salsa
This Salmon with Corn and Pepper Salsa is a delicious comfort food that’s also really healthy. The recipe uses good-for-you ingredients, like salmon, avocado, sweet corn, bell pepper, red onion, and chili. Plus, it takes less than 30 minutes to make. It’s cozy, a little spicy, and packed with veggies.
To cook the salmon, rub the fillets with spice rub and set aside while you boil the corn. Cool the corn slightly and remove the kernels from the cooked ear of corn. Place the kernels in a salad bowl. Add in the lime juice and zest and stir in the remaining ingredients for salsa. Finally, heat a pan and cook the salmon for 2 minutes per side. Serve the salmon with the prepared salsa and extra lime wedges for squeezing over.

Steps to make Salmon with Corn and Pepper Salsa
Make spice rub
Cut off kernels
Prepare salsa salad
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish fillets skin-side down. Use a fish spatula to press the top of the fillets down so that the bottom side makes contact with the skillet, about 30 seconds. Cook, without moving, until golden and crisp, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip the fillets and continue cooking until done but still a little pink in the center, 2 minutes more. Transfer to a wire rack and let rest for about 10 minutes.
