Caribbean Salmon

Enjoy our flavorful twist on this Caribbean Salmon dish, complete with ingredients to make your own homemade mango salsa.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb Salmon – cut into 2 servings
  • 1 Orange – squeeze for the juice
  • 1 Lime – squeeze for the juice
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Pineapple Juice
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4 slices Pineapple

Mango Salsa Ingredients

  • 2 slices Mango – cut into cubes
  • 1 Lime – squeeze for the juice
  • 1 Mango – cut into small bite-sized pieces
  • .25 cup Chopped Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Avocado – cut into cubes
  • .25 cup Chopped Red Onion
  • .25 cup Cilantro

Instructions
 

  • Combine the orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, pineapple juice, cayenne pepper, thyme, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.
  • Marinate the salmon for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Do not leave in the marinade for too long as the citric acid will cook the salmon and make it too mushy.
  • While the salmon is marinating, combine the mango salsa ingredients and set aside.
  • Heat a pan to medium. Remove the salmon from the marinade but do not dispose of it yet. Place a tbsp of olive oil in the pan and sear the salmon skin side down for 3-4 minutes, until the bottom starts to turn opaque. Flip the salmon and peel the skin off. This should come off very easily. Brush the marinade across the previously skin covered side of the salmon. Continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes. Flip once more and cook for about a minute.
  • Place each piece of salmon on top of two pineapple slices and top with the mango salsa. If you want to add more flavor and appearance to the dish, grill the pineapple slices beforehand. Serve with Rice and beans or fresh veggies!
