This grilled tuna dish hands down was the big favorite because of the smoky tomato salsa. If you prefer a milder relish, remove seeds from the jalapeño before grilling. I didn’t and it was spicy, but no overwhelmingly so.
Unfortunately, I overcooked and blackened the tomatoes too much (it’s the fish in the upper left) even though I followed the directions perfectly. My grill must have been too hot.
Grilled Salmon with Smoky Tomato Salsa
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/2 cup salsa)
I substituted tuna steaks for the salmon, but you could use any type of mild fish or even chicken breasts.
- 4 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets
- 4 large plum tomatoes, halved
- 1 small red onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
- 1 jalapeño pepper, halved
- 1 lime, divided
- Prepare grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle fillets with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Place on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill for 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
- Place tomatoes, onion, and jalapeño on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill tomatoes, cut side down, 6 minutes. Turn; grill for 1 minute. Grill onion and jalapeño for 6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
- Remove from grill, and cool slightly. Coarsely chop tomatoes and onion; finely chop jalapeño. Combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and juice from 1/2 lime. Serve salsa over fish. Garnish with lime wedges.
