5 Ingredients: Blackened Salmon With Mango Salsa

Fire up the grill (or grill pan) and make savory blackened salmon topped with a fresh, sweet mango salsa.

I wish I liked salmon more than I actually do, but I have to admit, I often get bored with it. I know it’s good for me so I’m always looking for new ways to prepare it. Meet my new salmon obsession …. blackened and topped with a super fresh salsa!

Good Catch

Salmon is a smart pick all around. It’s a low-mercury fish bursting with healthy omega-3 fats. It can also be a sustainable pick. According to the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch, wild Alaskan or tank farmed operations within the U.S are best.

Blackened Salmon With Mango Salsa

Serves: 4
Ingredients:
1 large mango, peeled and finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 pound wild salmon, skin removed; cut into 4 pieces

1 tablespoon Smoky Fennel Grill Seasoning or your favorite grill seasoning

Kosher salt, pepper and canola oil

Directions:

Preheat grill or grill pan. In a small bowl combine mango, red onion and cilantro. Season with ¼ teaspoon of kosher salt and pepper; mix to combine and set aside.

Season salmon with 2 teaspoons of canola oil and grill seasoning. Gently rub spice mixture so that it evenly coats each side. Grill for 4 minutes, turn and cook on the other side for an additional 3 minutes. Serve topped with salsa.
