Summer Fest is off to a great start with some amazingly beautiful Grilled Eggplant Recipes.
While I unfortunately was not able to join in on the eggplant challenge, I am happy to be able to jump on board with the next seasonal item of choice: Peaches!
Succulent and sweet, peaches are favored in desserts, jams, chutneys and sauces of all type.
This Pan Seared Salmon with Fresh Peach Salsa is the perfect balance of sweet and savory. Highlighting the perfection that comes with this beautiful fruit in a way that is unusual yet familiar, this dish is a fantastic way to extend your palate and enjoy the beauty of the season.
Pan Seared Salmon with Fresh Peach Salsa
3 Large Peaches, Diced
1 Bunch Fresh Cilantro, washed and diced
1-2 Fresh Jalapeño*, diced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
Juice of 1 Lime
Salt & Pepper to taste
4-6oz Salmon Filets
2 Tbs Olive Oil
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
In large bowl, prepare salsa by mixing peaches, cilantro, jalapeños, garlic and lime juice. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Set aside.
Preheat large heavy skillet over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Coat salmon with olive oil and minced garlic. Place in skillet and increase heat to high. Cook for 3 minutes, turn and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until salmon is flaky and firm.
*To adjust the heat of the salsa, feel free to remove seeds and choose either one or two jalapeños for this mix. I like the heat of the jalapeño and chose to make my salsa with two jalapeños, seeds included.
Be sure to go visit the other Food Network Summer Fest participants for more ways to enjoy your tantalizing peaches in full.
