This Roasted Chili Orange Salmon can be made in less than thirty minutes. Topped with a fresh fruit salsa, it’s a light and beautiful dinner.
I came up with this Roasted Chili Orange Salmon the other day when I made some fresh Peach Kiwi Avocado Pepper Salsa. Although my kids love chips and salsa, I was hoping they’d try it with fish.
My boys typically don’t like cooked salmon. There’s something about the strong flavor that they dislike. However, served with a bright, fruity, tangy salsa on top, they ate every bite. Interesting.
My theory is that my kids are visual eaters, and that they probably found the contrast in colors especially inviting.
Years ago, I remember serving my kids a plate of roasted cauliflower, mashed potatoes and roast chicken. Everything was white. They remarked about the lack of color on their plate, and although they admitted that everything tasted great, that it just wasn’t all that appealing.
