Salmon with Strawberry Salsa

The following recipe, video and photography were provided by our partner, Chef Billy Parisi.

Swap traditional tomatoes for strawberries to create a sweet salsa that pairs perfectly with pan-seared salmon!

Tossed with fresh ingredients like basil, honey and balsamic vinegar, this fish-forward fare looks and tastes as though it came from a restaurant, but in reality, it’s extremely easy and quick to cook!
