And here we are again! Yet another colorful summer dinner. I’m absolutely loving cooking this summer. The sweet peaches from LA have been beyond delicious and our herb garden is so beautiful right now.
It makes cooking fun and exciting! I’ve really been looking forward to sharing this recipe, it’s so vibrant and the flavors are truly out of this world. My dad said it’s one of his favorite recipes of the summer.
The secret is the peach salsa and a small drizzle of browned garlic butter.
Here are the details
This is one of those recipes that looks like it could be tricky, but actually comes together pretty quick and simply!
The majority of the dish is all made on one sheet pan. I like to roast the fish, but grilling is a wonderful option too. Season up the fish with my favorite “BBQ” style seasoning blend. It’s a mix of chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. And then cinnamon, but just a small amount, just enough to warm up the dish. Hopefully, these are all spices you have in your pantry.
The next step is to roast the fish along with some jalapeños, peaches, and corn. All of which we’ll toss together to make the salsa.
Once the salmon has finished cooking, pull the jalapeños, peaches, and corn off the pan. Give everything a good chop and then toss it all together in a bowl with cilantro and avocado. Roasting the peaches really helps to bring out their sweetness and create a juicy spicy-sweet salsa. This would even be delicious when eaten with tortilla chips!
The final step is the garlic butter. I usually make this while everything is cooking in the oven. It seems like an extra step, but this really adds a nice richness to the meal that I love.
It’s simply butter and garlic cooked together until the butter browns and the garlic crisps. I usually add a pinch of cumin flakes too!
For serving, I think this is best over steamed rice. I add lots of salsa, then the salmon, and lastly, I drizzle the garlic butter over the bowl.
Nothing fancy, but totally delicious. And to be honest, better than anything you’d order out at a fancy seafood spot. You can customize each bowl more to your liking, and the spicy peach salsa is a game-changer.
