  1. Make the salsa by combining all of the ingredients listed. Stir well to combine and let the salsa rest in the fridge while you prep the rest of the dish.
  2. Sprinkle the salmon with the lemon pepper seasoning and press it into each fillet. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the multigrain mix, water, orange juice and chopped purple onion to a saucepan. Bring to a boil over med-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit for 10 minutes, until the grains are cooked.
  4. While the pilaf rests, heat a non-stick skillet over med-high heat. Spray the pan with non-stick spray. When the skillet is hot, add the salmon fillets (skin side up). Sear for 5 minutes, flip and cook for 5 additional minutes. This will yield moist fillets.
  5. To assemble, spoon half of the multigrain pilaf onto two plates. Top the pilaf with one of the seared salmon fillets and spoon half of the salsa on top of each fillet.
