Zesty fruit salsa takes traditional grilled salmon up a notch. An instant summer classic.

4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
4 (6 oz.) salmon fillets, skin-on
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning,
Fruit salsa


Creole Seasoning:
2 1/2 Tablespoons paprika
2 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons garlic powder
1 Tablespoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 Tablespoon dried thyme

Fruit Salsa:
3/4 cup small diced pineapple
3/4 cup small diced mango
1/2 cup small diced strawberries
1/4 cup small diced red onion
1 jalapeño, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat a grill to medium. Brush both sides of the salmon with the olive oil. Season the salmon on both sides with the Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper. Place the fish on the grill, skin side down and cook for about 3 minutes, then turn the fish 45 degrees and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Turn the fish over and cook for an additional 2 minutes, or until cooked through to the desired degree of doneness. Remove the fish from the grill and serve with the fruit salsa spooned over the fish. Serve immediately.

Creole Seasoning: Combine all ingredients thoroughly.

Fruit Salsa: In a medium, non-reactive bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir to blend. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the salsa to macerate for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
