Garlic Salmon with Mango Salsa

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know by now that salmon is one of my absolute favourite fishes. I just love how versatile it is and how quick it is to make. A simple piece of it can be turned into a healthy dish in less than 10 minutes and as you know that’s what I’m all about. When it comes to quick tasty dishes this garlic salmon does not disappoint. It is bursting with flavours and freshness, it is juicy, and above all, it’s easy.

I’m a big fan of the freshness mango can bring to a hot dish, especially in the summer, last year I was obsessed with my mango and chilli dressing on grilled chicken salads (click here for that recipe). It’s sweet juiciness pairs wonderfully with grilled fish and chicken. Make sure to use ripe and firm mangoes and fresh peppers. The crispiness of the pepper really adds a wonderful crunch to this dish. The chilli is completely optional, red onions already give this salsa a bit of a kick.

Please always remember to buy Salmon from a sustainable source and it’s best to use fresh fillets rather than frozen.

As always I love to know if you tried any of my dishes so please to tag me on Instagram or tweet me!
