With the New Year here.....one of the most common resolutions is to diet and eat better. I recently got this recipe and made it for my family last night!! It was delicious and only 210 calories!!
Since My husband loves to go to Alaska to fish quite frequently.....we always have a huge freezer full of fresh fish. I am always in search of new fish recipes that the whole family will enjoy!!
Salmon with Cucumber Mango Salsa
6 Tbl. fresh lime juice
2 Tbl. honey
4 Cups 1/4 inch cubes whole or sliced mangoes
3 Cups 1/4 inch unpeeled hothouse cucumber cubes
1 1/3 cups minced red onion
2 Tbl. minced and seeded green jalapeno pepper (I left out for the kids)
1 tea. ground cumin
1/2 tea. salt, plus more to taste
Pinch of cayenne (again I left this out for the kids)
8 4 oz. salmon fillets, skin and bones removed
Olive Oil spray
Black pepper (Optional)
- To prepare the salsa, whisk lime juice and honey in a medium resealable container until well combined. Add mango, cucumber, onion and Jalapeno, and stir until well blended. Seal the container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let the flavors meld. Season with salt to taster. Serve cold or at room temperature.
- To prepare the salmon, mix cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pinch of cayenne in a small bowl. Lightly mist both sides of salmon fillets with olive oil spray. Sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over both sides.
- Place a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the fillets until the outsides are just lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Then lower the heat to medium and cook until the salmon is a pale pink throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
- Season with more salt, cayenne and black pepper to taste, if desired. Transfer each fillet to a plate. Top each with equal portions of the salsa.
- Makes 8 servings
