Broiled Salmon with Summer Fruit Salad

Every Sunday when we go to the farmers market I buy a HUGE fillet of salmon, from Marilyn, our beloved seafood purveyor. The second I get there I race to get in the long line of other farmers market goer’s who have been devouring her insanely good salmon for years. While I enjoy it as is with nothing more than a sprinkle of salt on it, this Summer Fruit Salad is a total game changer! It screams SUMMER from the very first bite.

The first time I made this Broiled Salmon with Summer Fruit Salad we had friends over and they were so excited to try it. After all, there’s nothing more beautiful than bringing out a huge platter with a gorgeous piece of fish on it, but when you see the bright colors of the composed salad it’s jaw droppingly gorgeous. 

The best part comes when you take a bite, though. As much as I love eating a piece of salmon on it’s own, this summer fruit salad adds not only a ton of nutrition, but also a sweet, tangy and crunchy note to each and every bite. 

If you’re looking for a total crowd pleasing recipe this summer you must try Broiled Salmon with Summer Fruit Salad. It’s the easiest recipe to whip up and a total game changer.

    Do you cook the corn? I have a friend who recently told me she uses uncooked corn sometimes. I always thought it had to be cooked. Who knew?!

      Sometimes. Depends on the quality and freshness of the corn! You totally can leave it raw and eat it as is!

    How much longer would I need to broil the salmon if my filet is frozen? Thank you!!
