Salmon with Chili-Mango Salsa

Salmon with chili-mango salsa

Remember yesterday’s post about my calorie app?  Remember what I said about fruits and vegetables? 

Really, now I buy as much fruit as I do veggies.  And while yesterday’s fruit salad is a fantastic option, I also wanted to find other ways to include fruit.  Thank you, The Bon Appetit Cookbook: Fast Easy Freshfor this recipe!  It is one of those that is incredibly easy, but looks incredibly impressive.  

I served it with some couscous and literally had dinner on the table in about 20 minutes. 

Salmon with Chili-Mango Salsa

  • 1 10-ounce mango, peeled, pitted, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced seeded serrano chili
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 6-ounce salmon fillets
  • Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat).  Combine first 7 ingredients in small bowl; mix in 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Season salsa with salt and pepper. Brush salmon with remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil. Grill until just opaque in center, about 5 minutes per side. Serve with salsa.  ***Note I didn’t grill mine, I just pan sautéed them for about 3 minutes per side.

    Serves 2

      Our favorite cookbook MAKES A COMEBACK! It’s been on the sidelines for far too long. I’ll be making this the first chance I get!
