The other night for dinner we had Salmon Mango Salad. Delicious! This is one of those meals we always return to even if we haven’t had it for a while. Oh, you want to try it? “You can’t touch-a the mango!”. Okay, you can. Sorry, Chris Kattan SNL flashback. That mango may be off limits, but this salmon mango salad requires minimum effort to attain.
You see, this is precisely why you get married. Never as a single guy would I ever have made something like Salmon Mango Salad. But I was missing out! Hopefully you’ll try this and it will become one of your favorites too. Enough talk, on to the specifics:
Salmon Mango Salad Recipe
Adapted from a Cooking Light recipe
4 6 oz salmon portions
2/3 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (5-6 limes)
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
mixed salad greens
1-2 ripe mangoes, sliced and peeled
Preheat oven to 375.
Whisk together lime juice, honey and ginger. Place salmon in a foil lined pan. Drizzle about 1/4 to 1/3 of lime honey ginger mixture over top. Season slightly with salt. Cook for approximately 10-12 minutes, then broil until brown on top.
Divide greens onto four plates. Top with mango and salmon, then drizzle with remaining honey lime ginger mixture.
