I am starting a summer series sharing recipes, wines, drinks, makeup, and anything that is perfect for enjoying in the summertime! We don't have too much summer left, so let's make the most of it while we can! Here is my favorite summer meal... it's light, fresh, and super easy to whip up! My uncle served this for us, along with an incredible summer salad (posting on that later!) and some crisp white wine. I thought it was the PERFECT summer meal. Enjoy!
Grilled Salmon With Mediterranean Salsa
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup chopped fresh tomatoes (I used the small cherry tomatoes)
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pitted Kalamata olives
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 salmon filets
Preheat grill to medium heat. Mix parsley, tomatoes, feta cheese, olives, olive oil and lemon juice until well blended. Let stand at room temperature until ready to serve. Season salmon with salt, pepper, and Old Bay Seasoning. (The Old Bay is optional but makes the salmon so tasty!) Grill salmon 5 mins on each side or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Serve each salmon filet topped with 1/4 cup of the salsa. If grilling isn't an option, I have roasted the salmon in the oven at 425 degrees for 15-20 mins until it flakes easily with a fork. It's just as good!
