How to Make Baked Salmon with Corn Relish

Download PDF

Try to learn to love fish. Many of us have had bad experiences eating fish that wasn’t very fresh (and was fishy tasting) or fish that wasn’t prepared correctly. The trick to fish is to buy it fresh and never overcook it. This salmon with corn relish is a super simple recipe (just 4 ingredients) that takes no time to make. Be sure and make up a batch of my secret spice recipe (video is available on my website) which adds flavor and not calories. Once the fish is in the oven you’ll have just enough time to put the relish together before the fish is done. Finish the dish by squeezing fresh lime juice over the top. Yum! It’s a tasty, healthy, fresh dinner plan.

1½ lb. fresh salmon
2 ears fresh corn, or ¾ cup frozen corn if fresh isn’t available
1 avocado
Juice of 1 lime
4 tsp. Mary’s Secret Spice (MSS) or 2 tsp. each of cumin and chili powder

Step 1:  Prepare the fish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Rub a teaspoon of MSS on each salmon fillet and place in a baking dish coated with cooking spray.
