Salsa

1/2 medium cucumber (about 3 ounces), peeled, seeded, and chopped

1/4 cup quartered or chopped grape tomatoes (about 2 ounces)

1/2 medium green bell pepper, chopped

1/4 cup finely chopped radishes

Cooking spray

4 salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each), rinsed and patted dry

1 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper (coarsely ground preferred)

 

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a medium bowl, gently stir together the salsa ingredients. Set aside.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray.

Put the fish on the foil. Sprinkle the thyme, salt, and pepper over the fish. Using your fingertips, gently press the seasonings so they adhere to the fish.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the desired doneness.

Transfer the fish to plates. Spoon the salsa and its accumulated juices beside or over the fish.
