  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh salmon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • caramelized shallot corn relish
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 ears sweet corn, cut from the cob
  • 3/4 cup sweet cherry peppers, pimentos, diced


  • Preheat the broiler on your oven to high.
  • Season the salmon with the salt and pepper and place it on a baking sheet. Add the butter to a small saucepan over medium heat and heat until melted. Add in the minced garlic cloves. Brush a bit of the garlic butter over the salmon. Broil the salmon until the top is opaque and the fish is flaking, about 8 to 10 minutes for salmon that is about 1-inch in thickness. Remove from the oven and brush the remaining garlic butter over top. Serve with the shallot corn relish.

Stir in the sugar and cook until caramelized, about 10 more minutes. Stir in the corn and the diced peppers. Cook for another minute or two until the mixture is warmed.
