Mango and Avocado Salmon


I made this salmon for dinner last night for my sister’s 16th birthday! While the flavors and ingredients in this dish are very summery, I was actually able to find really fresh mango and avocado to make the salsa topping taste how it should. And it gave me an excuse to use the grill for the last time before the dreaded Chicago winter hits us.

Mango Avocado Salmon

For the salsa…

1 mango, diced

1 jalapeno, minced

1/2 red onion, minced

3 cloves of garlic, minced

2 tomatoes, diced

1 lime, juiced

1 bunch of cilantro, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1 avocado diced for topping

Combine all ingredients and mix well.

For the salmon…

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon minced ginger

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 pinch of pepper

Salmon fillets

combine marinade ingredients and let salmon refrigerate for one hour.

Heat your grill to medium and place salmon fillets on foil. Cook for 20 minutes or until fish is opaque.

Serve with salsa topping and enjoy!!
