  • 24-28 oz salmon fillet cut into 4 pieces
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper


  • 2 medium semi-ripe mango
  • 1 big red onion
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup cilantro (See NOTE 1)
  • 2 pieces bird's eye chili or jalapeños
  • 1 lime or lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper


  • Rub each piece of salmon fillet with salt and pepper all over. Heat the grill pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, lower heat to medium. Place salmon pieces on the grill pan and grill for about 5 minutes each side. The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
  • While waiting for the salmon to cook. Prepare the Mango Salsa.
  • Using a peeler or knife, peel the skin off of mango. Hold the mango in one hand. With a knife on the other hand, cut through the flesh until the pit, horizontally then vertically to create cubes.  Now slice thinly along the pit to separate the cubes from the pit. 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.
  • Squeeze out the juice from a lemon or lime into the bowl. Add olive oil and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. 
  • Toss everything on the bowl together until well blended. 
  • Place the pan-grilled salmon on a serving dish or plates and top with the mango salsa. Serve it while warm with rice.



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.
