Ingredients
  

FOR THE PINEAPPLE AND PIQUILLO PEPPERS SALSA
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 2/3 cup diced jarred Cara Mia Piquillo Peppers
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced english cucumber
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped mint
  • fresh lime juice of 1 whole lime
  • 1/2 tablespoon STAR Original Pure Olive Oil
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste
FOR THE FISH
  • 4 (5-ounces each) salmon fillets with skin-on
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons STAR Original Pure Olive Oil
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste

Instructions
 

FOR THE SALSA
  • Prepare the salsa by combining all ingredients in a medium bowl; toss to combine and chill for at least 2 hours. Taste for seasonings and adjust accordingly.
FOR THE FISH
  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Wash fish fillets and pat dry with paper towel.
  • Brush each fillet with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Set a grill pan or a cast iron pan over medium-high heat.
  • Place the salmon, skin-side up on the pan; cook for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Turn the salmon over, skin-side down, and transfer pan to the oven.
  • Continue cooking for 5 to 7 minutes, or until done. Salmon is done when it starts to release the white substance, or fat.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 2 minutes.
  • Transfer to a plate.
  • Spoon previously prepared salsa over fish.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

If grilling the fish on a grill:
1. Heat a grill to medium-high.
2. Season the salmon as directed in the recipe.
3. Brush the cooking grate with oil.
4. Place the salmon, skin-side-down, on the grill and cover.
5. Cook, undisturbed, until the salmon just starts to release its fat; about 10 to 15 minutes for most 1-inch-thick fillets.
6. Remove the fish from grill and transfer to a plate.
7. Spoon salsa over fish and serve.
