the Ingredients

  • Salsa
  • 2 nectarines, about 1 pound/455 grams total, cut into 12-millimeter dice
  • ½ cup / 80 grams diced (¼ inch/6 millimeter) red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup / 30 grams diced (¼ inch/6 millimeter) red onion
  • ¼ cup / 6 grams finely chopped fresh chervil leaves or 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 salmon fillets (with skin), each 6 to 8 ounces/170 to 225 grams and about 1 inch/2.5 centimeters thick
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • 01 In a medium bowl combine the salsa ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 02 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F/230° to 290°C).
  • 03 Season the salmon on both sides with the salt and red pepper flakes and then drizzle with the lime juice and oil.
  • 04 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the salmon, flesh side down, over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until you can lift the fillets off the grate with tongs without sticking, 6 to 8 minutes. Turn the fillets over and continue cooking to your desired doneness, 2 to 3 minutes for medium rare. Slip a spatula between the skin and the flesh, and transfer the fillets to serving plates, leaving the skin on the grate. Serve warm with the salsa.
