Colourful Salmon and Mango Salsa Recipe

Posted on April 27th, 2021

Delicious and filling, this healthy and colourful recipe is packed with nutrients!

Salmon is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acid, which studies have shown may help with eye inflammation and reduce the effects of vision conditions such as Age-Related Macular Degeneration, cataracts, and dry eye syndrome. Vitamin E may also protect eye cells from unstable molecules called free radicals, which break down healthy eye tissue.

Mango, peppers, and onions provide an array of vitamins and minerals; most prominently, vitamins C and A, folate, and vitamins B6 and K1, to name a few.

All health benefits aside, this flavourful mango salsa sides perfectly with the juiciness and subtle umami flavours of fresh salmon, resulting in a delightful meal that’s tasty but not overwhelming.

Ingredients

4 wild Alaskan salmon fillets (frozen or fresh)

1 tbsp. olive oil

Salt and pepper

Mango Salsa:

1 cup mango (cut into 1/4-inch cubes)

1/2 red pepper (cut in 1/4-inch cubes)

1 green onion (chopped finely)

1 tbsp. fresh cilantro (chopped)

Salt and pepper

Juice and zest of 1 lime

1 tbsp. olive oil

Instructions

1. Preheat your oven broiler to 400 degrees.

2. Line a cooking sheet with aluminum foil.

3. Place the salmon fillets on the cooking sheet and lightly brush them with olive oil. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on each fillet.

4. Place the salmon in the oven for 5-10 minutes (or until brown on the top and cooked throughout).

5. While the salmon is cooking, prepare the salsa.

6. Gently mix together the mango, green onion, red pepper and cilantro to create your salsa. Season with a little salt and pepper.

7. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime zest and lime juice to create a dressing.

8. Pour the dressing over the salsa and mix them together.

9. When the salmon is finished cooking, place one fillet on each plate and spoon one quarter of the salsa on top.

Serve this bright and tasty dish with quinoa, green salad or brown rice.
