Crispy Salmon with Mango and Avocado Salsa

{Crispy Salmon with Mango and Avocado Salsa}

Eureka! This may be the most luscious, delicious salmon dish you've ever tried. I promise.

Okay, I do exaggerate a lot, but this all in one delicious and healthy summer dish may tickle your tastebuds so hard that you squeal like a little girl (or grunt like a boar).

The mango is tart and sweet, the avocado is rich and buttery, the onion is crispy and slightly spicy, the lime juice is tangy, and the salmon is slightly spicy. I think they call that unagi, right? All in all, it's a recipe that you must try this summer. It's tropical and healthy, with a hearty dose of Vitamin C and omega 3s. Please try my recipe. Amazing.


1 mango
1/2 avocado
1/4 red onion
1 medium sized lime
1 tsp honey
Sprinkle of salt

1 fillet of salmon
1 TBSP cumin
1 TBSP salt
1 TBSP garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Olive oil for cooking

{Fresh ingredients make for the best dishes: preparing the avocado, mango, and onion}

Begin by preparing your fruits and vegetables for the salsa, Cut each end off of the mango to create a steady base for cutting around the core, and run your knife along the core to get the meat of the mango. You want to carefully peel off the outer peel as well (either with your knife or fingers) because it is too tough to eat in the salsa. Cube your mango, avocado and red onion and throw into a bowl.

{Voila, mango and avocado salsa}

Squeeze a whole lime, drizzle your honey and sprinkle with salt. Gently toss altogether until combined. You can taste it to make sure it is seasoned to your liking. It is supposed to be slightly liquid so that your salmon can absorb the lime and honey flavors.

{The spices for the salmon}

Put your salmon spices into a bowl and mix together. Rub on each side of your salmon so that it creates a slight crust. In a small pan heat up some oil for your salmon.

{Spicy, crispy salmon}

In a heated pan, cook your salmon on high heat on each side for 2 minutes each and then for 4 minutes each on low heat depending on the thickness of your fillet. Make sure the drain the oil before putting it on your dish or else you fish will appear oily.

{La piece de resistance: crispy salmon with mango salsa}

On your plate, pile the salsa on top of your hot salmon (liquid and all). Enjoy a heaping bite of salsa with each bite of salmon and indulge in the delicious flavors. If it's not spicy enough for you, drizzle with sriracha.
