https://kcculinary.com

Thanks to Chef Gary Hild, of KC Culinary Center, we have a beautiful healthful salmon recipe to share with you to celebrate National BBQ Month in May. ‘Tis the season for outdoor cooking…  

 Sauté

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cloves garlic, peeled, smashed, finely minced

½ cup tomatoes, fresh, seeded, diced

½ cup corn (preferably fresh, cut off the cob and cooked)

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

¼ cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons cilantro, fresh, washed, chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Salmon

Oil, for grill

2 (5-ounce) salmon filets, skin on

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

For the sauté, in a sauté pan heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute or until brown and fragrant, stirring constantly making sure garlic doesn’t burn.   Add tomatoes and corn.   Sauté for 1 minute, stirring frequently.  Add vinegar and cook for a few seconds, stirring constantly.  Add cream and continue to cook until sauce is reduced enough to coat all vegetables and has a creamy texture, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Add cilantro, salt, and pepper.  Stir to combine and set aside in a warm place.

For the salmon, clean grill grates and brush with oil.  Preheat grill over high heat.  Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the salmon with oil, evenly dividing.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place on grill, skin side up and cook for 1 minute; then turn ¼ turn on same side to create crosshatch marks.  Continue to cook for 1 minute.  Turn filets to skin side down and cook 2 minutes or until instant-read thermometer reaches 140 degrees.  Remove from grill and place on a clean flat surface.  Using a sharp paring knife, carefully remove skin from salmon and transfer to individual dinner plates.  Top each with ¼ cup of the warm sauté.   Serve immediately.  Makes 2 servings.

ETC:  This entrée pairs well with fresh asparagus, your favorite green salad, and fresh avocado.
