  • 1/2 cup ripe mango peeled and diced
  • 1/2 ripe avocado diced
  • 1 Tbsp jalapeno finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp red onion diced
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper
  • Salt and white pepper to taste

Directions:

FOR THE FISH:

  1. Pat each fillet dry, using a paper towel.
  2. In a small bowl mix, all the spices add salt, pepper, and the extra virgin olive oil, whisk until well blended.
  3. Brush the pieces of our Coho salmon with the mix.
  4. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, gently add the fillets to the pan skin-side up first and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, flip and cook skin-side down for 3 to 4 minutes or until desired doneness.

FOR THE SALSA

  1. Combine the mango, avocado, jalapeño, red onion, lime juice, cilantro leaves and mix well, season with salt and white pepper to taste.

Could be the mango avocado salsa made ahead of time?
