Ingredients

  • 2 skinless salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or avocado oil
  • Juice and zest from one lime
  • 23 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mango & Avocado Salsa

  • 1 large mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 small bunch of cilantro or parsley, finely chopped
  • Juice from half a lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a baking dish whisk together the oil, lime juice and zest, garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place the salmon in the baking dish, cover and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Preheat a non stick grill, cast iron skillet or regular skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Brush the grill grates with oil if using a grill, or add a teaspoon of oil or non stick spray to the pan. Place the salmon on grill and grill for about 3-4 minutes per side or until just cooked through.

For the mango salsa

  1. While the salmon is cooking, prepare the salsa by adding the diced mango, bell, pepper, red onion, avocado, cilantro, lime juice and olive oil to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. To serve, place the salmon onto a plate topped with the mango and avocado salsa alongside a cup of warm brown rice, quinoa or couscous.
