Who knew strawberries lent a delicious complement to fish?

Serves 4

Refreshing is the only word for this dramatic salmon dish with a strawberry salsa that has summer eating written all over it.

1 cup diced strawberries
1 red plum, diced
1 peach, diced
½ cup diced mango
Juice and zest of 2 limes
1 tablespoon maple syrup
¼ teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
4 six-ounce pieces salmon fillet
Olive oil

1. Mix the fruit, citrus, maple syrup, ¼ teaspoon salt and basil in a bowl. Let stand at room temperature at least 30 minutes before using.

2. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet over high heat; add a film of olive oil; reduce heat to medium high. Cook the fillets skin-side up for 3–4 minutes, depending on thickness. Carefully turn over and cook skin-side down for 1 minute.

3. Transfer each fillet to a dinner plate and top with some of the salsa.
