I was in Arizona this past weekend celebrating my birthday with my cousin (who has the same birthday!) and we got our first taste of Spring weather! I even landed back in Los Angeles on Sunday to clear blue skies and a warm breeze. It was heavenly! It's about this time of year I transition from heartier Winter meals to lighter Spring and Summer dishes, and this easy salmon recipe is one of my favorites!
The salmon fillets are simply seasoned with avocado oil, salt and pepper before roasting in the oven. I like to use a clay baker, but a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil would work as well! You just want to make sure your salmon fillets won't stick to your pan.
The roasted salmon is then topped with a simple, but delicious corn and radish salad. The corn is first sautéed and cooled, before adding to the sliced radishes, a bit of red bell pepper, cilantro, and green onion. Add a squeeze of lime juice for a little zing, and it is ready to be served on top of the salmon!
Radishes are at their peak in Spring, and these little red roots add the perfect crunch and balance out the sweetness from the corn beautifully. Make sure when you are picking your radishes that you buy them with the greens still attached. The tops should be bright green and not wilted or brown.
This easy salmon recipe is sure to be a new favorite this Spring!Print
