    • 4 pieces of salmon
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon coriander
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
    • Salt to taste
    • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 thinly sliced shallot
    • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    • 3 ears of corn, kernels removed
    • 1/2 pt. red grape tomatoes, sliced in half
    • 1 1/2 diced avocados
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
    • Ground black pepper


    • Preheat the oven to 400°. Arrange salmon skin-side down on a plate.

    • In a small bowl, whisk together the coriander, brown sugar, and chilli powder and season with salt. Rub the mixture into the salmon.

    • Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large non-stick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until nearly smoking. Sear salmon fillets skin-side up to 2 minutes.

    • Flip the salmon, then transfer the skillet to the oven and cook for 3 minutes more or until the salmon is just cooked through.

    • In making the salsa, combine the shallots and red wine vinegar in a small bowl and set aside. Season it with salt and pepper.

    • Using a larger bowl, stir together the corn, tomatoes, avocados, and cilantro. Add the red wine vinegar and shallots mixture, along with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil.

    • Once the salmon is already cooked, reaching a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, you may now plate the dish.

    • Serving Suggestions: Add a generous scoop of salsa to a plate. Place a piece of blackened salmon next to the salsa. Garnish with remaining cilantro and lime zest.
