Salmon with Mango Salsa

Here is another dish that you can make in just a few minutes. Easy it might be but is very much restaurant-worthy level if you ask me. I love the mixture of the different taste like salty, sweet, sour and spicy this dish brings to the table. The sweetness of ripe mangoes is a welcoming change from other salsa.

And I so love that it can all be done in under 15 minutes! Cooking the rice actually took longer.

You can also use this mango salsa as a dip for your favorite nacho chips.

Salmon with Mango Salsa

4-Ingredient Mango Salsa

  • Semi-ripe mangoes
  • red bell pepper
  • cilantro…or parsley
  • lime or lemon juice

If you like you can also add red onions and substitute jalapeños for the red bell peppers. You can also add olive oil, salt, and pepper for seasoning.

I prefer to use semi-ripe mangoes over the ripe ones. They have the right texture, just the right firmness and softness. Easy to peel and cut and also to bite. Plus you can enjoy the sweetness with just a hint of tanginess.

Although cilantro is most commonly used for mango salsa, I went with my guts to substitute it with parsley and it turned out great. Armin also loved it because he dislikes the soapy taste he gets when eating cilantro. Yes, he is one of the 20%  of the population who gets that aftertaste from cilantro.

Transfer mango cubes in a big bowl.
  • Chop the red onion, bell pepper, and cilantro or parsley and chili. Add these to the mangoes. Squeeze out the juice from a lemon or lime into the bowl. Add olive oil and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

RECIPE NOTES

NOTE 1.  For those who are not a big fan of cilantro, you can use parsley instead for a milder flavor. Taste great as well.
NOTE 2. You can also skip the chili or jalapeno if you want to keep the spiciness down.
