Pepper-crusted grilled salmon with tropical fruit salsa


2 cups fresh pineapple, diced
1 mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into 3/4-inch dice
1 small papaya, peeled, seeded and cut into 3/4-inch dice
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 teaspoons lime juice
2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar
4 (1/4-pound) salmon fillets
3/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

To make the salsa, gently stir together pineapple, mango, papaya, cilantro, lime juice, and brown sugar in a medium bowl.

Sprinkle salmon with pepper and salt. Spray a nonstick ridged grill pan with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Add salmon and cook just until opaque in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 plates; top evenly with salsa.
