In a large bowl combine the beans, corn, bell peppers, green onions, garlic, jalapeŇo, cilantro, lime juice, and olive oil. Stir well to combine, and season with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt and the cayenne. Let the flavors blend for 30 minutes before serving.
Season the salmon fillets with the Essence and remaining teaspoon salt.
Heat the canola oil in one large or two small skillets over high heat. Add the salmon and sear for 2 to 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Serve immediately with the black bean relish.
