Classic grilled salmon gets a summer update with fresh strawberry salsa.

  • 1 English or seedless cucumber, finely chopped
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro, cut into strips
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 yellow pepper, diced
  • 1 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and diced small
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon lower sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 6 (4-ounce) salmon fillets, skinless

For salsa: Mix cucumbers, green onion, cilantro, yellow pepper and vinegar. Cover and chill at least one hour. Just before serving, add strawberries.

For sauce: In a small saucepan melt butter with garlic and olive oil over low heat. Stir in honey, soy sauce and lemon juice and cook 2 minutes, set aside.

Prepare a charcoal grill; when ready brush sauce on salmon pieces and place on a grilling rack. Place rack over coals about 4 inches from fire and grill approximately 4 to 5 minutes on each side. (Alternatively, a skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat works equally well.)  Brush with the sauce again after turning and again when done. Remove from grill and top with strawberry salsa.
