A simple fresh salsa, chopped to a pleasing texture in the food processor, is all you need to complement succulent roast salmon. This salsa is endlessly versatile, so try it with other fish, chicken breasts or on top of scrambled eggs.


  • 2 each medium plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 each small onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and quartered
  • 1 each fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2–4 dashes hot sauce
  • 1½ pounds salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 6 portions


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalapeno, vinegar, chili powder, cumin, salt and hot sauce to taste in a food processor; process until finely diced and uniform.

  • Refrigerate the salsa for up to 1 day.
