Lemon Grilled Salmon With Corn Salad
This is a recipe I tagged to make for a game that I play on recipezaar as it sounded a little different from the usual salmon recipes. I am so glad I did as it was delicious, the corn salad was so light and refreshing and complimented the salmon so well. I also loved the combination of the cumin, lemon zest and paprika used on the fillet itself. To read more reviews on this recipe or to view more photos please click here.

1. For the corn salad: In bowl combine corn, sweet pepper, chives, basil, maple syrup, lemon juice, and the 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
