I felt that Salsa (even mild and used sparingly) would overwhelm the wonderful salmon flavor.

While I can see how you may come to that conclusion without trying it, considering how strong and salty many store-bought salsas are, I have found that a good, mild salsa fresca subtley accentuates the rich salmon flavor. Its lime-base sets up the salmon just as a lemon does, and the rest of the ingredients intermingle in the background, adding tropical accents and a clarity of palate complementing the rich fullness of the salmon. Everyone we have made it for has commented on its excellence. One of our friends originally made this for us (with a luscious mango), and we raved over it; before that time we had done primarily the lemon thing, but now we do that only occasionally. As a person that has tried salmon both ways, I heartily recommend giving it a try, if you ever desire a change of pace from the traditional lemon squeeze of the salmon purist, which certainly is a fine way to go and even simpler to prepare. However, you can always put the salsa on the side as a relish, and it's no fat plus it provides a good assortment of nutritious veggies&fruit to go with the meal.

I happened to run aross this site today:

Happy salmon eating tonight!
