You can use any salsa you like: mild, medium, or hot. For the best flavor, buy the fresh variety sold in the refrigerator section of grocery stores.

Instructions Checklist

  • Broil until fish is opaque throughout and zucchini is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over high heat. Add corn and garlic; cook, tossing, until corn is tender and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in scallions and salsa; season generously with salt and pepper. To serve, place fillets on plates, and serve with zucchini and half the corn. Reserve other half of the corn for next day. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.

Cook's Notes

For a spicier version of this dish, cook 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes with the corn and garlic in step 3.

This recipe is great, but the ingredients should be modified to reflect the fact that only half of the corn mixture is used. I usually end up forgetting and eating twice the corn.

My husband describes every meal I make as either "good" or "pretty good." Tonight, he said the corn was "a masterpiece." The salmon, however, was "good," and the zucchini was "pretty good." Overall, I'd call this recipe a winner. :-)

Coming from British Columbia...I would hope that the salmon you are using is 'wild stock'. Atlantic salmon is really farm fish. And I'd like to know what kind of salmon: Pink, SOCKEYE, Chum, Red or Whie Spring. I would use SOCKEYE, the creme de la creme of the salmon family. Mildred Cook

Really delicious and super easy. A painless way to get your family to eat both fish and lots of vegetables. What else could you want?
