The Grilled Salmon with fresh Blueberry Corn Salsa was delicious! It was a big hit with everyone. I wasn’t so sure I would like the combination of blueberries and salmon but it blended really well so that the blueberries didn’t take over the flavors.
I used the following ingredients:
Salt & Pepper
Red Wine Vinegar
Since it was December and cold outside I baked the salmon in my oven instead of grilling. Otherwise, I seasoned the salmon as the instructions stated with the cumin, salt and pepper.
I combined the remaining salsa ingredients and once the salmon was cooked I covered the salmon with it.
The individual pieces had plenty of salsa and there was more left for anyone that wanted more!
