  • Time cooking time: 10 minutes
  • Yield Serves 4

Ingredients

    1/2 cup hot tomato salsa
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
    1 garlic clove, minced
    4 6-ounce Pacific salmon steaks, thawed if necessary
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    3/4 teaspoon lime zest, grated
    1/4 teaspoon cumin, ground
    to taste salt and pepper
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    for garnish: lime wedges

Preparation

    Set aside two tablespoons of salsa.
    In a medium bowl, combine the remaining salsa, lime juice, mustard, and garlic. Coat salmon steaks in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour.
    In a medium bowl, combine the soft butter with lime zest, cumin, and the two tablespoons of the reserved salsa. Mix well, and set aside.
    Preheat broiler on high.
    Remove salmon steaks from marinade (discard marinade); season with salt and pepper. Arrange side by side skin side in an oiled oven-proof dish.
    Place the salmon under the broiler, 4 inches from the heat source. Broil 3 minutes per side, or until the fish just flakes when tested with a fork. Bone and skin the salmon steaks.
