Preparing the baked salmon with strawberry salsa– 5 minutes
PEEL the red onion and cut it quite fine. RINSE the strawberries and remove the strawberry hull, the green part. Also cut the strawberries quite fine and combine them with the red onion. Season with pepper, salt and a little bit of red wine vinegar, you don’t want to make it very moist or mushy. Chop up the basil leaves and also stir them into the salsa mixture.
Putting it together — 10 minutes
PAT the salmon dry using paper kitchen towels and season with pepper and salt. HEAT olive oil in a large skillet and bake the salmon on the skin side first. After about 3 minutes on medium high heat, the skin will be crispy. TURN the salmon over and also bake for about 3 minutes on the other side. If your fillets are thicker, you should cook them a little longer.
