Broiled or Grilled Wild Salmon with Blueberry-Cilantro Salsa

This recipe came to us courtesy of the BC Salmon Council, and could serve as an easy, tasty Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Amy at the Minimally Invasive food blog picked it up from us, and contributed this great photo of the dish served atop asparagus.

We like the idea of serving the salmon and salsa over greens (e.g., spinach or chard; cold or sauteed).

It would also make sense to serve this dish with whole grain on the side... we'd serve it either with quinoa or a mix of wild and "real" rice, with a sprinkle of dried cranberries added during cooking for extra color, texture, and flavor.

To appeal to the broadest range of tastes, leave the chopped cilantro, jalapeño, and onions out of the salsa, and instead serve them on the side for folks to add to their salsa or not.
