    Great recipe!
    When baking salmon you should always sear the fish to lock the pores and keep nutrients and juices inside while baking.

    Step 2b) Heat a pan on high heat, drop fish in pan on each side for 15-20 seconds to seal pores. Then bake. use a spray of oil if your pan isn't 100% non-stick! - 8/13/09

    This was amazing, even in the winter! ;) My bf and I both enjoyed this very much--he even THANKED me after he'd finished eating! For the record, 1 medium tomato = approx. 1 cup diced, 1/4 medium red onion = approx. 1/4 cup chopped, and one handful of cilantro = approx. 1/4 cup chopped. - 1/11/10

    To make this a true summer recipe, instead of turning on the oven, place in the microwave with a cover on it. I usually cook on high for 1 minute and then on 50% for 5 or 6 minutes. - 7/17/09

    Fabulous! I just cooked the salmon plain because I love the taste of the fish itself, and it paired wonderfully with the salsa. I was out of corn, so I just subbed double tomatoes, onions and cilantro, and added a splash of lime juice. The citrus helps the avocado keep for leftover portions. - 5/20/10

    I cook a lot of Salmon, cod and a few other varieties of fish and shrimp. When not sure how cook it simple pour a can of Rotel chili tomatoes over it or your favorite store brand or homemade salsa. Make a light grave, using coffee as your liquid, adding a touch of any salsa to it to spice it up. - 7/18/09
