“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” – Julia Child
In my books, this is just good food from fresh seasonal ingredients. A colorful flavorful meal, perfect for the BBQ season. 

Sweet creamy corn is available, mangoes are showing up everywhere and there is an abundance of fresh herbs in the kitchen garden. All these plated together is just good food. I have used the simplest of ingredients for flavoring the salmon so as to bring out the real taste of salmon. You can use your favorite marinade. Start by preparing your salsa while the BBQ is preheating. Refrigerate to let the flavors blend together. Grill the corn first as that will take some time. While that's cooking, marinate your fish and keep it ready. The whole meal will be ready in 30 minutes. Enjoy.
