Roasted Salmon with Minted Plum Salsa
From my blog at:


  1. 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. 2In an oven proof dish, marinate fillets for about 30 minutes in lemon juice and tamari, turning once midway.
  3. 3 Before roasting press garlic slices on top of each fillet then grind some black pepper over. Roast in the marinade for about 7 – 10 minutes, depending on thickness. Baste with the marinade occasionally. When done, flesh will look opaque and feel firm yet the middle should still be slightly reddish. The fish will continue to cook after removing it from the oven.
  1. 1

    PLUM SALSA: Combine honey and vinegar in a small saucepan and cook over moderate heat until reduced and it coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and let cool.
    Combine remaining salsa ingredients together in a medium bowl and stir in the cooled reduction. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon over salmon fillets.
