Bite Of Minnesota: Mango Avocado Salsa
Time sure does fly by! It’s already time for another salmon shipment. We originally signed up for a salmon share in an effort to eat salmon more regularly, ideally once a week. So far we’re staying on track with that and still have a couple more packages of salmon in the freezer.
Although I love creating and trying new recipes, I prefer to prepare my salmon quite simply by grilling, searing, or roasting the filets. Where I get creative is with the accompanying sauce or side, like this mango avocado salsa. I’ve done a couple variations on this recipe using tomatoes instead of the mango or lemon juice instead of lime, depending on what I had on hand. It’s absolutely delicious spooned on top of a piece of simple salmon or serve it with tortilla chips. Either way, your tastebuds will be happy.
Mango Avocado Salsa
(makes approximately 1 cup)
1 ripe avocado, diced
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 small mango, diced OR 1 tomato, seeded and diced
2 tsp red onion or shallots, minced
1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1/4 tsp kosher salt
In a small bowl, combine avocado with lime juice and toss gently to coat. This will help reduce browning. Add diced mango, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper to desired spice level and spoon over the top of salmon.
