  1. Place in a bowl: the avocado, cubed; the tomatoes, halved; ½ tsp of diced jalapeno; ½ cup of corn; squeeze ½ lime over mixture and set aside.
  2. Heat oven of 425 degrees. Place poblano peppers, halved, seedless, skin side up, on baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and salt over them. Bake for about 15 minutes or until skin begins to darken. Remove from oven. Set aside.
  3. Cook rice. 1 cup of rice. 1 ½ cup water. Drizzle of olive oil. Dash of salt. Bring to a boil. Cover. Simmer for 20 mins. Remove from heat.
  4. Rinse and dry salmon filet. Rub olive oil on filets. Salt and pepper them. Sprinkle cumin and chopped garlic (2 cloves) on top. Place, skin side down, in a med-hot skillet (drizzled with olive oil). Cook on medium heat for 4 mins. Flip filets so skin side is up. Cover pan for about 2 mins. This should yield a medium-rare salmon filet. Then, Cook longer if you prefer. Remove fish from pan.
