As the submitter of this recipe I wanted to comment that although many people who have reviewed the recipe have chosen to bake the salmon with the salsa, the recipe does not intend for it to be prepared this way. The salsa is meant to be served as a condiment to the baked salmon. It should be refrigerated and allowed to sit out just a few minutes before serving. Just wanted to clarify for those who are considering trying the dish. Thanks!
I found the pineapple overpowering and the overall flavour combination to be a bit odd / too sweet for my taste.
Refreshing and delicious would be the best description for this dish. It is a perfect summer meal not only because it takes advantage of ingredients at their peak, but when it is hot and humid, the last place one wants to be is cooking over a hot stove. Just a few suggestions/minor changes: 1) DON’T cook the salsa with the fish. The coolness of the salsa makes a nice compliment to the warm fish. 2) Do make more of the salsa. It’s good. 3) I add a bit more broth than suggested. The first time I made this recipe, all the broth evaporated and the fish stuck to the bottom of the pan (I also prefer to use vegetable broth, but that is a taste preference.) 4) The lemon pepper isn’t enough; we add more seasonings to give the fish extra flavor. Oregano leaves are a must and – depending on my mood – cayenne pepper/red pepper flakes (for a little oomph) or cinnamon (for sweetness). I usually serve this recipe with mashed sweet potatoes (they add some substance to the meal, but still keep it semi-healthy), but asparagus, an avocado salad or Waldorf salad would all be good accompaniments.
this was a excellent seafood recipe. I only changed on thing I cooked the salsa with the salmon and it came out beautiful.
Excellent. My husbands new favorite way to have salmon. I also added 3/4 cup quick rice and I cooked it with the salsa. I mixed it all up and put te salmon on the bottom.. it came out perfect.
This was GREAT! I happened to have shallots lying around, but I wouldn't hesitate to use a yellow or green onion in it's place. I didn't have lime juice so I used half OJ and half lemon juice. I added extra brown sugar, cilantro and 2 green onions for extra zing. I will make this all the time. Thanks!
This was even better than I had expected and I didnt even have a couple of things on hand. I followed the others reviews and baked the salsa on top of the salmon. I left one piece without the salsa for a picky child, but the juice flavored that one nicely too. The pineapple and tomato combo was nice and tangy. I used a little purple onion because I didnt have shallots. I also realized that I was out of chicken broth so I just poured the salsa all over the fish and baked until flaky. I let it set a few minutes so the soy/juice thickened some. Delicious! My teenage daughter ate two pieces and went on and on about how great it was!
KUDO'S to the chef.
I agree. keep it as intended or create your own recipe......hehe
very good and unique recipe..
a few minor alterations per taste. but someone decided to change the entire intent of recipe.....making it all different..
I like the original......
baked with the condiment sauce may be good, but is a different recipe and flavor all together...
Originality has its perks...and as a hobby chef, I applaud you.....
