“These bright and clean flavors are a perfect pairing with Summer heat.”
- 2 each 6 oz Secret Island Salmon
- 2-3 ears of Fresh Sweet Corn – kernels removed
- 1 pint Cherry or Sungold Tomatoes – halved
- 1 large Green Jalapeno – seeds + ribs removed, diced
- 1-2 cups of Frozen Shell Beans (Lima, Butter, Fava, Soy, etc) – thawed
- 1 large Shallot – minced
- 1 tbsp Lemon Zest
- 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 3 tbsp Olive Oil
- Kosher Salt + Fresh Ground Black Pepper – to taste
- ½ cup Slivered Almonds
- 2 cups Fresh Cilantro – stems removed
- 2 cloves Fresh Garlic
- ½ cup Olive Oil
- 1-2 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
- ½ tsp Kosher Salt
- ¼ tsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
- Make the cilantro pesto ahead of time! Combine all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until it all has a smooth consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate for later use or let it sit at room temp until the rest of the meal is ready!
- Preheat large sauté pan with olive oil over medium – high heat. First add corn and cook 6-8 minutes until evenly browned – then remove. Add tomatoes, jalapeno, shell beans, shallot into pan and cook until lightly browned – 5-7 minutes.
- Add apple cider vinegar and cook until reduced by half – then add lemon zest and stir to mix together.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and 1-2 spoons of cilantro pesto – gently stir to incorporate and add salt and pepper to taste. (You can also keep the succotash as is and use the pesto as a separate sauce on the plate!)
- Pat your salmon dry with a papertowel and season with a pinch or two of salt and pepper.
- Preheat the pan over medium-high heat – add oil (we like olive or avocado oil) and heat until shimmering – then reduce heat to medium-low.
- Add salmon fillets, skin side down, one at a time pressing firmly on each to ensure even contact between the skin and pan.
- Cook salmon for 7-8 minutes – occasionally pressing on the fillet to keep skin contact with pan. Check for doneness by gently lifting one corner of the fillet with a fish spatula – it should lift easily, without sticking. If it does stick, press again and cook until it is easily freed.
- Gently flip all fillets to skin side up in pan and cook an additional 15-20 seconds.
- Remove salmon from pan and serve while hot along with cilantro pesto succotash.
