Citrus Pepper Broiled Salmon with Fresh Tomato Salsa


The light, refreshing combination of citrus with crispy cucumber and red onion is set alight with a touch of jalapeño chili pepper.

This recipe follows the example of many equatorial cuisines, which combine fish or poultry with fruits and spicy seasonings.

It's a tasty way to get the goodness of foods rich in colorful, flavorful, powerfully healthful antioxidant pigments.

This recipe is for two… to serve more, just multiply the ingredients as needed. Adapted from one by “Katie” on her goodthingscatered blog… and it is a tangy treat!
