The zesty lime, pungent garlic and sweet honey are a perfect foil for the rich salmon. If you like, arrange the corn salad on a bed of mixed greens to serve with the salmon.

Salmon Steak with Vegetables and Salad Leaf

Did you know that on the old original Weight Watchers program you were required to eat fish several times a week? I was talking to my mom about it just the other day. She said she ate a ton of canned tuna!

I hear lots of comments from people saying that they just don’t know how to cook fish, or that they don’t like how it tastes or it seems complicated to make.

Fortunately, I love all kinds of fish. I like how it tastes and how good it is for me. It probably has something to do with being raised by parents who grew up on the coast of Maine.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to have all fish, including salmon, Zero Points foods on the new WW Freestyle Program! And corn is now 0 points too 🙂

This recipe would work well with shrimp instead of salmon, which is what I intend to do next time.

And these rosemary roasted potatoes would make a lovely accompaniment.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 2 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Make the dressing by combining the lime zest, lime juice, oil, garlic, honey, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. 
  • Use 3 tablespoons of the dressing as a marinade for the fish: place it in a large zipper lock plastic bag. Add the salmon. Squeeze excess air from the bag and turn the bag to coat the fish with the marinade. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, about 30 minutes.
  • Add the corn, bell pepper, onion and parsley to the bowl with the dressing. Toss to combine and set aside.
  • Preheat the broiler and coat the broiler pan rack with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Remove the salmon from the marinade and place on the broiler rack. Broil 5 inches from the heat until the salmon is just opaque in the center and lightly brown on the outside, about 4 minutes each side.
  • Serve the salmon with the corn salad.
