This honey glazed salmon with a fresh and simple mango salsa is light, fresh and healthfully delicious. And let’s not forget easy and beautiful, too!
There’s something about salmon with a fruit salsa over top that I just love.
Rich buttery salmon plus a fresh burst of fruit- gah! It’s summer so fresh produce is at it’s best and my body literally craves light and healthy meals just like this. Last year my daughters were obsessed over the citrus chili salmon I made with a strawberry avocado salsa to top it. This year, while Pat was away with friends on a golf trip- I made this little ditty.
It takes only minutes to prep and cook and is basically a guilt free meal. A summer go-to recipe for sure.
In a 8×11 dish, whisk together 2 tablespoons honeys, 1 tablespoon low-sodium tamari, 2 teaspoons sunflower oil and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper.
Whisk until completely blended.
Cut a large salmon filet into 4 pieces.
Place the salmon, skin-side facing up and move it around to coat the sides in the glaze. Move off to the side to prepare the salsa.
Finely dice 1 mango…
And add it to a bowl with 1/4 cup finely diced red onion minced cilantro…
…and the juice of half a lime.
Stir and set off to the side.
Prepare a rimmed sheet pan with foil and spray or rub with olive oil. Place the salmon, skin-side down onto the greased foil.
Drizzle or brush on more of the glaze before broiling for 5-8 minutes or until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily.
Top the honey glazed salmon with generous amounts of the mango salsa and serve.
I serve my salmon usually on a bed of couscous but wilted spinach or nothing at all is perfectly acceptable.
Oh! And served alongside it (just in case you missed that post) is my Grilled Baby Bok Choy with a killer Ginger Chili Sauce. DO. IT.
