Salmon with Mango Salsa

Pin It This is the perfect summer dinner!  It is light, healthy and refreshing.  The salsa pairs perfectly with any type of seafood so cook your favorite kind.  I grilled my salmon because it was nice outside, but f you don't have a grill you can always cook inside on the stove.

Salmon with Mango Salsa
1 mango, diced
1/2 small red onion, finely diced
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
3 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1/2 tsp ancho chile powder**optional
salt and pepper

4 salmon fillets
1 lime, juiced
ground corriander
ancho chile powder, or to taste
salt and pepper

To make the salsa
1. Cut up all fruits and veggies.
2. Place in a bowl and toss with lime juice and cilantro.
3. Season with salt and pepper and chile powder.
4. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
5. Spoon over salmon for a delicious summer meal.

1. Preheat your grill and coat grates with non stick cooking spray.
2. Lay salmon in a dish and squeeze lime juice on top.  Sprinkle fish with spices on both sides.  Don't let salmon marinate for more than 15 minutes or it will get mushy.
3. Cook salmon over medium high heat for about 3 minutes on each side.  Fish will turn opaque and flaky when done.
