Salmon with Zucchini and Sauteed Corn
From Everyday Food magazine

4 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 pound medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise, cut crosswise into 3-inch spears (about 1/2 inch thick)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen corn kernels (4 cups)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup chopped scallions
1 container (16 ounces) prepared fresh tomato salsa (2 cups)
Lime wedges, for garnish (optional)

  1. Heat broiler; set rack 4 inches from heat.
  2. Rub salmon all over with salt and pepper. Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle top of fillets with 1 teaspoon chili powder. Arrange zucchini around salmon; sprinkle with remaining teaspoon chili powder, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Broil until fish is opaque throughout and zucchini is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over high heat. Add corn and garlic; cook, tossing, until corn is tender and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat. Stir in scallions and salsa; season generously with salt and pepper.
  6. To serve, place fillets on plates, and serve with zucchini and the corn salsa. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.

Serves 4.
