Cumin-Grilled Salmon with Kiwi Salsa

Here's a tasty recipe for your Wednesday evening enjoyment. It's from Natural Solutions, one of my favorite magazines for recipes and health and wellness info. The recipe is called Cumin-Grilled Salmon with Kiwi Salsa, in case you didn't already figure that out from the title of this post.

Besides the fact it looks good and tastes even better, this recipe is touted as an "easy recipe for ageless beauty." If that doesn't motivate you to fire up the grill or the broiler, I don't know what will.

In a small bowl, mix 4 kiwifruit, peeled and chopped; 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion; 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro; 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice; and 1 teaspoon honey. Cover and set aside.

Rinse 4 (6-ounce) wild-caught salmon filets (about 1-inch thick and skinned) and pat them dry. In a small bowl, mix 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 2 teaspoons olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Rub the mix over the salmon and chill for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat or set your oven to high broil (I did the latter, as I leave all grilling duties to Conservative Hubby because it's his grill). Place the salmon on a grill rack and cook 6 to 8 minutes per side, turning carefully; or place in a grill pan 4 to 6 inches from your oven's heat source and broil for 10 minutes.

Spoon salsa over warm fish and serve, preferably with a side of steamed asparagus and some nice rice pilaf.
