chili-rubbed salmon with zucchini and sauteed corn

This is our Chili-Rubbed Salmon with Zucchini and Sauteed Corn from Great Food Fast. We are really into buying huge fillets of salmon and then portioning them. For this dinner, we made a mild version with the left-over barbeque sauce from last week's chicken for Owen, and the chili spiced one for us.
I tried both and I have to admit, I liked Owen's mild, bbq version better. The chili was just a little too one-dimensional. Using this same dinner with your favourite barbque sauce is almost better because salmon and zucchini are mild and take on flavours you match with. Whether it be chipotle or teriyaki, this recipe is really a great starting point for your own variation. As for the sauteed corn side, it was pretty much perfect. I like this as a side when you've had your fill of potato and pasta salads in summer, this is a nice healthy option as a summer side with a little kick.
