Chili Lime Salmon with Mexican Street Corn Sauté

Combining ii of my favorite loves..salmon as well as Mexican street corn was such a skillful thought. This is going into the weeknight dinner rotation because it’second and then quick in addition to easy, in addition to flavorful every bit heck. It tin live repurposed into and so many things similar tacos, for case. Probably a given, I know. Or, you lot tin add together it to a bed of greens!

The salmon is super slow. It gets rubbed alongside more or less of my favorite spices, in addition to so gets topped with a piffling lime juice too zest. Next, it goes into the oven for a quick xx minutes, as well as that’sec it! I make this version oft because it’sec delicious and takes no fourth dimension.

For those of yous who aren’t familiar amongst Mexican street corn or “elotes”, go make. It’second basically ane of the nearly wonderful combinations on this world. Fresh ears of corn are grilled, topped with Mexican crema in addition to/or mayo, chili pulverization, garlic, lime, cilantro, and finished with cotija cheese. It’second seriously a dream.

This is kinda my deconstructed version in addition to it would be every bit delicious on its ain, mixed into quinoa for a vegetarian version, or topped alongside shrimp, chicken, or steak if y'all’re non a salmon fan!
And served amongst a Mexican beer or margarita, of class.
