Wild Salmon with Mango Salsa

RECIPES – ENTREES, PALEO

This delicious wild salmon with mango salsa is a go-to in my kitchen. Ready in under 15 minutes, it’s perfect for a weeknight, despite the fact it’s fancy enough for a dinner party.

Wild Salmon vs Farmed Salmon

It’s important to choose wild salmon over farmed. Farmed salmon is not a health food. It is generally less nutritious, higher in omega-6, which makes it pro-inflammatory, and more contaminated with mercury and PCBs.

I typically get wild salmon from Whole Foods, or you can buy frozen in bulk from an online source like Vital Choices. If using frozen (which is a great and economical choice!) be sure to thaw completely by letting it sit in refrigerator overnight or using this quick thaw method using a bowl of cold water.

Ingredients

Wild Salmon

  • 4 3-4 oz wild salmon fillets
  • 1 lemon cut in quarters
  • pink salt a pinch
  • black pepper a pinch

Mango Salsa

  • 1 mango peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1 cup jicama diced (Or substitute cucumber)
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 1/2 cup grape or cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped

Instructions

To make the salmon

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • When salmon is done, remove to a serving plate, and top with mango salsa.
