  • 1 1/2 lb wild salmon fillet

  • salt and pepper to tast


  • Heat oven to 375 F.
  • Place salmon fillet on a baking sheet and use a pastry brush to brush it with a few coats of balsamic vinegar. Reserve the rest of the balsamic for later. Season salmon with a dash of salt and pepper.
  • Bake salmon for 15-20 minutes until cooked to your desired level of doneness. For well done fish, you may need to add a couple of extra minutes in the oven.
  • While salmon is in the oven, combine strawberries, cilantro, jalapeño, green onion and lime juice in a medium bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • When salmon is cooked, brush a bit of the remaining balsamic vinegar over the top. Top salmon with strawberry salsa and serve immediately.

Cooking time may vary depending on the size/shape of your filet and the level of doneness you like. Start checking your salmon around the 10 minute mark if you’re worried about cook time.
You can easily make this salsa a day or two ahead of time – just store it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat!
