Ingredients

Salsa

  • 1 mango (large) chopped
  • 1/2 pineapple (or 1 cup chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cup strawberries chopped
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 2 tbsp seeded jalapeno chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 cup white onion chopped
  • 1 medium tomato chopped

Salmon

  • 4 6oz Salmon Filets
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Mix all salsa ingredients together and let sit while you make the salmon.
  • Heat non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium high heat (medium for cast iron).
  • Pour a small amount of olive oil on salmon and coat with salt and pepper, rub in with your hands to ensure even seasoning.
  • Once hot, pour remaining olive oil in the pan. Wait about 30 seconds for the oil to heat up and place salmon filets in pan skin side up and cook until lightly crispy. Approx. 4-5 minutes.
  • Once the salmon is crispy and easily comes off of pan, flip and cook the skin side down 3/4 minutes or until salmon is medium well or just cooked through.
  • Take out of pan and squeeze a small amount of lemon juice onto each filet.
  • Once cooled off a bit, top with salsa and enjoy!
