Mango Salsa Salmon

Looking for a bright, fun way to spice up salmon? This sweet, tropical twist with mango salsa will give you everything you didn't know you needed.

EXPRESS LANE tips:
Try frozen mangoes instead of slicing and peeling fresh mangoes. Frozen salmon is just as delicious and nutritious as fresh salmon; simply defrost ahead of time. No basting brush? Spoon garlic oil over fish.

Personalize it:
Add pasta, brown rice, or the cilantro lime rice from the Tropical Pineapple Chicken and Cilantro Lime Rice Bowl. Mango salsa also makes a great dip or salad dressing—or stir it into mashed avocado for a twist on traditional guacamole.

  • 1 medium avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped red tomato
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 Jalapeno, seeded and diced

Directions

1. For the Mango Salsa

1) In a bowl, combine ingredients and stir.

2) Garnish with cilantro. Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and set aside.


2. For the Salmon

1) Place brush salmon skin-side down on your work surface.

2) In a small bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, garlic power, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Mix well.

3) Using a basting brush, dip into olive oil mixture and brush onto salmon.

4) Preheat a medium-sized non-stick skillet or pan over medium-high heat.
