Every one of the ingredients in this recipe brings a ton of flavor. Both chorizo and salmon cook in a hurry, and garlic and citrus go beautifully with them, too. —Charlene Chambers, Ormond Beach, Florida

Ingredients

  • 3 links (3 to 4 ounces each) fresh chorizo
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained

  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)

Directions

Remove chorizo from casings. In a large ovenproof skillet on a stove or grill, cook and stir chorizo, green onions and garlic over medium-high heat, crumbling sausage. Cook until sausage is no longer pink, 4-6 minutes; drain.
Reduce heat to medium. Add tomatoes, olives and orange peel; stir to combine. Sprinkle salt and pepper over salmon.
On a greased grill rack, grill salmon, covered, over medium heat 3-4 minutes per side, or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. Top with chorizo mixture. Yield: 4 servings.
