Salmon with Orange-Kiwi Salsa Recipe

"My husband has very selective tastes, so when he raved about this wonderful marinated baked salmon at a dinner party, I knew I had to have the recipe," says Maria Davis of Flower Mound, Texas. "The citrusy salsa is as pretty as it is tasty."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 cup white grapefruit juice
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • SALSA:
  • 1 cup chopped orange
  • 1 cup chopped kiwifruit
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Pour half into a large resealable plastic bag; add salmon. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade. In a small bowl, combine salsa ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade from fish. Place salmon in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Pour reserved marinade over salmon. Cover and bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with salsa. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
