Salmon and Fruit

14-16 oz salmon (or halibut) filets, about 1 inch thick
1 T. olive oil
1/4 t. lemon-pepper seasoning
3/4 c. chopped fresh strawberries (or peaches or nectarines)
1/3 c. chopped and peeled kiwi (or apricots)
1 T. snipped fresh cilantro
1 T. orange or apple juice
1 fresh jalapeno chili pepper, seeded and chopped (or 1/2 t. pepper)

1. Thaw fish, rinse, pat dry with paper towels, cut into 4 serving-size pieces. Brush both sides with oil and sprinkle with lemon-pepper. But in greased pan and broil for 8-12 minutes until flaky (turn pan 1/2 way through).
2. While cooking, in medium bowl combine fruit, cilantro, juice and pepper and set aside.
3. Serve fish with fruit and garnish with cilantro if desired.

**Note: cut pepper while wearing latex gloves because juices can burn skin.

I'm not a huge seafood fan, but I am trying to learn to like it since it is apparently so healthy for you. But this is as great recipe because the fruit salsa completely covers up any fishy taste so you can just enjoy the delightful seafood texture.
