Chili and Lime Roasted Salmon with Blueberry Corn and Basil Salsa

Today I am sharing another Tried and True recipe review from my sister's kitchen in Anchorage, Alaska from the great food blog, - Chili and Lime Roasted Salmon topped with Blueberry Corn and Basil Salsa by Chef Heather Christo.   

My sister absolutely loved this recipe, both the salsa and the salmon!  She said most people would not think to pair blueberries, corn and basil together (I wouldn't), it's seems like such a strange combination (it does), but it's so so good, so right on top of salmon!  She is already making plans to make this meal again.  I am excited to make the salsa soon too.  Instead of salmon, I plan to top grilled chili lime chicken with this gorgeous salsa!

This is the review my sister left for Chef Heather regarding her fabulous recipe: 

"What a fabulous recipe! I live in Alaska and we have a freezer full of salmon. I am always looking for different fresh and healthy fish recipes. I made this with the blueberry, corn and basil salsa a few nights ago and it was amazing. The only variation I made was sprinkling some Hungarian paprika on my salmon because I pulled a fillet from last summer’s catch from the freezer (Silver aka Coho) and it was not as red and beautiful as yours in the picture. I LOVE the grated jalapeƱo! I did not tell my boys because they would have refused to eat it… It gave the fish just the right amount of heat – AND THE SALSA… that will be a staple in our house. It’s so refreshing, fresh and crisp and the flavors are music in the mouth. Really, it’s such a great recipe, flavorful and healthy!"

The Blueberry Corn and Basil Salsa recipe would be terrific on top of a variety of fish, chicken and pork or served with your favorite tortilla chips.

Head over to for the recipe and to see how beautiful the Chili Lime Salmon is topped with the Blueberry Corn and Basil Salsa!  

A big thank you to my sister for this great recipe find, photos and share!

Thanks for stopping by!
