Salmon with Mango Salsa

When we make salmon, we usually make this gluten free roasted red pepper crusted salmon or this gluten free mustard and brown sugar salmon that I have blogged about in the past.

This time, I wanted to try something different, I was feeling a little creative and adventurous from all the Food Network I've been watching.  I know had some some frozen mango chunks from Wal-Mart, and I wanted to use it with the salmon.  So I thought, hmm... on Chopped they usually try to make a salsa to put on a protein.  So I was thinking to try a Mango salsa because it is naturally gluten free. I just didn't know exactly how to put it together, so I used Google as a starting point and saw different variations to work from, that used Mango's, onions, and peppers cilantro and other veggies.

So here's what I came up with that really worked out.

Mango Salsa Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chopped mango (I used the frozen mango you can buy at Wal-Mart and thawed in microwave for 30 seconds.  That also gave some nice juices for the salsa)
  • 1/4 cup tomato
  • 1/4 cup green or red pepper
  • handful of chopped red onion
  • (you can add some cilantro, but Amanda doesn't like cilantro)
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tbs lime juice
  • 1 tbs oil

Salmon Ingredients

  • 4 Salmon fillets
  • salt & pepper
  • sliced lemon (or some lemon juice if you don't have)
  • splash of oil


  1. Throw all salsa ingredients in bowl, mix and let sit while you prepare the salmon
  2. Place salmon on foil
  3. Season salmon with salt and pepper, place slices of lemon on top and splash of oil.
  4. Wrap salmon and cook in BBQ or oven until just flaky (about 20 minutes)
  5. Remove lemon slices and pile salsa ontop of salmon
I can't see these are exact directions, I kind of winged this recipe, but I'm sure you guys can figure this one out. Don't be afraid to add or leave out ingredients to the salsa to your taste.  That is what I did!
