Salsa-Roasted Salmon

By sexyswamprat

Ingredients
  • 1 medium plum tomato, roughly chopped

  • 1/2 small onion, roughly chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and quartered

  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and roughly chopped

  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 or 3 dashes hot sauce

  • 8 ounces center-cut salmon fillet, skinned (see Tip) and cut into 2 portions

  • Tip: To skin a salmon fillet: Place a fish fillet on a clean cutting board, skin side down. Starting at the tail end, slip the blade of a long, sharp knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding the skin down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30° angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Place tomato, onion, garlic, jalapeño, vinegar, chili powder, cumin, salt and hot sauce to taste in a food processor; process until finely chopped and uniform.

  3. Place salmon in a medium roasting pan; spoon the salsa on top. Roast until the salmon is just cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
