Grilled Salmon with Kiwi-Apple Relish




Salmon is my husband and I's favorite fish.  It is one of those things we always have on stock.  

Salmon is a fatty yet nutritiously delicious fish.  And like anyone who loves to cook and eat, we have our own preferences when it comes to preparing, cooking, and eating salmon.  Since it is a fatty fish, we want to cook it in a certain way that it won't cloy the palate.  Frederick wants salmon either raw or cooked rare or undercooked, he doesn't like it well done, cooked prolongedly, neither over-cooked because it becomes dry and unappetizing.

Sometimes, when I grill salmon to his liking - tender, somewhat silky, moist, and undercooked, the fattiness of the salmon is off-putting not only to him but also to me. That's why I tried experimenting on side-dishes, some fruity or savory condiment that can go with it.   Kiwi-apple relish is one.
