Baked Salmon with Fuji Apple Relish
- 4 (6 oz. each) salmon fillets, skin removed
- Salt, pepper, chili powder
- Cooking spray
- 1 Fuji apple, diced
- 1 scallion, diced
- ¼ red pepper, diced
- 1 oz. (2 T.) extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 °F.
Season salmon with salt, pepper, and chili powder. Place the salmon on a baking tray that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 10-14 minutes until the thickest part registers 125°F and is still slightly translucent (check with small cut using a paring knife).
Place remaining ingredients along with salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste in a small bowl; mix and set aside. This can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator. Top each fillet with the reserved relish before serving.
These “meatballs” have just the right amount of spice. Treat these like traditional meatballs...serve with marinara sauce or pesto on a bed of pasta or make a meatball sub. Or change things up by making the mix into patties for delicious veggie burgers.
