Seafood and Summer - They go well together

Share it Please
Salmon and Peach Salad

There is really nothing more refreshing than eating light, fresh meals in the hot summer days.  For the past couple of weeks, we have been doing just that - simple, easy dishes with lots of local and regional fruits.  Can you tell I love peaches?  I find a reason to put them in everything, can't get enough.  And every time I bite into one and the juice runs down to my elbow, I remember those gigantic juicy peaches my uncle used to bring home in crates from his field.  The kids would gather around one of the wooden crates and feast over it.  What a treat!

Salmon and Black Rice
I made a peach salsa the other day to go with the sardines we were grilling, and it disappeared so fast, I didn't get a chance to photograph the bowl.  A few days later, I decided to make it again with some sockeyed salmon, black rice and a handful of crispy salmon skin.  A very simple, fresh salsa with a ton of flavor and takes no time at all.
