Salmon with Blueberry-Mango Salsa

So I can’t remember what magazine this came out of…I have had this quiet sometime now! I LOVE IT and could eat it every night…however Russell isn’t big on salmon. He does like this recipe though! This is a great spring and summer recipe! Hopefully the CRAZY weather will calm down and spring will be here so we can eat this!  It is fast, easy, healthy, and yummy!

Makes 4 servings

prep time – 20 minutes

cook time – 10 minutes

  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup peeled, diced mango
  • 2 TBSP minced red onion
  • 2 TBSP minced red bell pepper
  • 1 TBSP minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 TBSP fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp.  minced jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tsp. sugar or evaporated cane juice
  • 1/4 tsp of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 – 4 ounce salmon fillets
  • pinch of sea salt and ground pepper

1. Combine blueberries, mango, onion, pepper, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Lightly crush with a fork to release the juices. Set aside. (sometimes I make mine earlier while the boys are at school and put in a bowl in the fridge. Then I just pull out when we get home)

2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and sear for 3 to 5 minutes per side or until just cooked through.

3. Serve fillets with the blueberry-mango salsa on top.
