My favorite kind of meal.

Hey everyone! So I have some recipes on the back burner, but the meal I made last night was too good not to publish it for all to see. It had all my favorite qualities for a meal: healthy, easy, quick, and not too many ingredients.

Chili-rubbed Salmon with corn salsa

What ya need:
4 filets of salmon (or however many you need, I only got 2)
2 teaspoons chili powder
salt and pepper
2 zucchini
1 package cherry tomatoes
1 10 oz package frozen corn
1/2 cup salsa
Olive oil
1 clove of garlic

What ya do:

*Make sure the oven is set to Broil, with an oven rack at the highest level.

*Wash the salmon and rub with salt and pepper. Sprinkle one teaspoon of chili powder over the salmon. Cut up the zucchini into strips, and place around the salmon on a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up. I also included some tomatoes, but feel free to throw in any other veggies you want roasted with the salmon. Just be careful not to burn them!

*Place the baking sheet in the oven, and broil for approximately 8-10 minutes. Make sure the salmon is opaque throughout and the zucchini is tender.

*While the salmon, zucchini, and any other veggies you my have included are broiling, saute the frozen corn with 1 tbl of olive oil and the chopped up clove of garlic. After corn has browned (about 5-8 minutes), take off heat and add in chopped scallions and salsa and stir.

*Serve salmon and veggies with corn on the side, and garnish with lime wedges.

This was the perfect summer meal :) Easy, inexpensive and absolutely delicious.
