Ok when I read the original recipe for this I started laughing. It calls for pink (aka chum) salmon. That is not salmon meant to be eaten grilled or any way but canned or used as bait (hence it being called chum). So I used red instead and it was tasty.
For the salmon:
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 lime, juice of
- 4 (6 oz) salmon fillets
- olive oil spray
- lime wedges for serving
For the black beans and corn:
- 15.5 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 cups frozen corn kernels (fresh is fine)
- 1/4 cup red onion, minced
- 3 tbsp finely minced cilantro
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
- kosher salt to taste
Combine all the spices in a small bowl. Squeeze lime juice over salmon then rub in the spices to completely coat; set aside to rest about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and sauté 2 minutes; add beans, corn and salt and cook until heated through, about 6 – 8 minutes.Remove from heat and toss in cilantro and lime juice. Makes 3 1/2 cups.
Heat a clean outdoor grill (make sure the grates are clean and lightly oiled) or if cooking indoors a lightly oiled grill pan over high heat. When hot, grill the salmon for about 5 minutes on each side or until the fish is opaque throughout. Serve with black beans, corn and lime wedges.
