Salmon with Mango Salsa

Serves 2


2 salmon filets with skin
½ mango, diced small, skin removed
2 roma tomatoes, seeds removed, diced small
3 tbsp diced red onion
½ cup cilantro, stems removed, diced – additional for garnish if desired
juice from 1 lime
¾ tsp paprika
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp onion powder, thyme and oregano each
1/8 tsp sea salt and pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper for spice
Olive oil for the pan


  1. Dice up ingredients for the fruit salsa – mango, tomatoes, red onion and cilantro. Add lemon juice and a small pinch of salt. Let sit.
  2. Mix together all of the spices and coat each salmon on the flesh side
  3. On a BBQ or stovetop grill (if stove top add 1 tbsp olive oil to the pan) – grill skin down for 15 minutes on low-medium heat, flip over and cook another 5 minutes. If the fish needs longer to cook – flip back to the skin side and continue cooking – it should be no longer pink inside.
  4. Top fish with salsa and additional cilantro if desired.
