Salmon Mango Salsa With Rice Recipe
With so many salmon recipes out there, it can be hard to decide which one to pick. However, this recipe for seared salmon with mango salsa and jasmine rice is a delicious and healthy meal that is perfect for a weeknight dinner or a special occasion. The salmon is seared on the stovetop and then finished in the oven, resulting in a perfectly cooked and flavorful piece of fish. The mango salsa, made with ripe mangoes, red onion, red bell pepper, and cilantro, adds a sweet and tangy element to the dish. The jasmine rice provides a fluffy and fragrant base for the salmon and salsa.
To prepare the dish, start by setting the oven to 400F. Season the salmon with sea salt and pepper, and set a nonstick skillet or griddle on high heat. Once the pan is hot, spray it with a little olive oil, and place the salmon face down (skin side up) on the skillet to sear the top for about 2 minutes. Flip the salmon over in the skillet so the skin side is down, and then place the entire skillet in the oven baking the salmon for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the flesh is cooked through and can be easily flaked with a fork. While the salmon is cooking, prepare the mango salsa and jasmine rice according to your desired recipe. If you wish so, you can also make some creamy coconut rice as it will also go well with the salmon.
Once everything is cooked, plate the salmon, salsa, and rice and enjoy! This mango salsa salmon recipe is a perfect combination of flavors and textures, and is sure to become a go-to meal in your kitchen.
This salsa salmon recipe is easy to adapt to your dietary needs or preferences. If you don’t eat salmon, you can use any type of protein you prefer, such as chicken, shrimp, or tofu.
