This was a delicious dish! Great combination of flavors! I didn’t make my salsa really spicy but it still had a nice kick. The original recipe called for a kirby cucumber, but I honestly have no clue what that is so I just used 1 1/2 regular large cucumbers.

Generously salt & pepper salmon fillets. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Place fillets skin side down in the hot skillet. Cook until skin is crispy & salmon is opaque 3/4 of the way through. Flip & cook a few more minutes or until the rest of the salmon is opaque.
