Salmon Steaks with Mango Salsa


It's hard not to love salmon. It's packed with nutrients and tastes excellent, whichever way prepared. I make it pretty often so I try to vary it as much as I can. I quickly seared the steaks in the pan and then popped them in the oven for a couple of minutes. I topped them with refreshing mango salsa. The salsa was just perfect with the salmon. Dinner was delicious and came together quickly; it's ideal for dinner any night of the week.


Ingredients for Salmon Steaks with Mango Salsa:


2-4 salmon steaks

grapeseed oil

2 mangos, peeled and diced

1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced

1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno chopped, 1-2 depending on the size

1/4 cup chopped red onion

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

kosher salt

black pepper


Time-Saving Tip: The salsa can be prepared 1-2 hours before cooking the salmon.


Let's see what we need.


Let's cook.



Add the diced mango to a bowl.


Mix in the red bell pepper, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice; season with salt and set aside.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse and dry fish thoroughly with paper towels and season the fish with salt and pepper. Add enough canola oil to the ovenproof pan to lightly coat the surface. Heat the pan to medium-high. Once heated, add the fish. It will splatter.  After about 1-2 minutes, the steaks should be a golden brown. Using a spatula, flip them over. After cooking for about 2 minutes or so, place the pan in the oven. Cook for about 3-5 minutes or until done. Don't overcook the fish, or else it will be dry. Keep in mind that there is some residual cooking after removing the fish from the oven.


It's ready! Salmon Steaks with Mango Salsa looks fantastic. Just top each steak with a spoonful of salsa. Be sure to pass around the rest of the salsa because it is so good that everyone will want more. This meal is easy!

Enjoy!
