No recipe image available.Broiled salmon served atop soft polenta with a refreshing mint and lime corn relish.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup polenta
3 1/2 cups chicken broth

1 pound boned salmon fillet with skin (maximum 1-inch thick)
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Corn Relish:
1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels (thawed, if frozen)
1 (2-ounce) jar diced pimientos, drained
1/3 cup chopped red onion, soaked in ice water for several minutes and drained well
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon snipped fresh mint

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Polenta: In a 5 to 6-quart pan, combine polenta and broth. Stir over high heat until mixture boils, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until polenta is smooth to taste, about 15 minutes.
  2. For Salmon: Rinse fish and pat dry; cut into 4 equal pieces. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Lay salmon skin side up in a lightly oiled 10 x 15-inch pan.
  3. Broil about 4 inches from heat source for 4 minutes. With a wide spatula, turn salmon over and broil until fish is opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), about 3 to 4 minutes longer.
  4. For Corn Relish: In a small bowl, mix corn, pimientos, onion, lime juice, and mint.
  5. To Serve: Spoon polenta equally onto plates. Add a piece of salmon to each and garnish with corn relish. Season to taste with salt and pepper, as desired.
