5 (6 oz) salmon filets, boneless and skinless
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt & black pepper, to taste
4 ears of corn, shucked and cut into kernels
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
1 lime, juiced and with the zest (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 400° F.


2. Line a baking sheet with foil and brush with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.


3. Place the salmon onto the baking sheet and brush the top of each piece of salmon with an additional tablespoon of oil.


4. Season with salt and pepper and place into the oven. Cook the salmon for 8-10 minutes for medium. Cook it a bit longer if you like your salmon well done.


5. While the salmon is cooking, place a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan.


6. Add the corn and season with salt and pepper and cook for about a minute before adding the black beans and half of the scallions. Toss to coat and stir in the tomatoes.


7. Remove the salmon from the oven and place each piece on a plate. Top with the corn mixture and garnish with the remaining scallions as well as a little lime juice and zest.
