Salmon with Mango and Pomegranate Salsa

I once ordered a salmon dish when having a catch up with a friend and it was served with a delicious mango salsa. The flavoures complemented each other so well and the salsa made the whole dish look so colourful and appetising. The mango was such a nice and interesting addition to the salsa.It was so good that I decided I had to recreate it or at least make something similar, this was two years ago! The other day I realised I never actually made it…so here we are now…

Even though I’ve recently decided to stay away from meat, I do still eat fish every now and then, especially salmon. It’s a great source of omega 3, vitamin D, vitamin B as well as other nutrients and minerals so I like to have it once a week.

I love having light meals like this one with lots of vegetables/salad (in this case also fruit!) during warm summer evenings. Simple, light and refreshing. This salmon with mango and pomegranate recipe is also quick and easy to make. It will only take 20 minutes to prep and cook this nourishing, well rounded meal.

I’ve left the salmon quite basic in terms of seasoning since the salsa itself is bursting with amazing flavours. Fresh, sweet, tart with a kick of heat from the Jalapeรฑos.

    1. I know what you mean about the pomegranate being too seedy ๐Ÿ˜› shame we can’t get seed free pomegranates! But I like the crunch and flavour it gives to recipes, and of course it makes everything look so pretty ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. This looks sooooo delicious! That salsa!! OMG! It sounds so refreshing and it has so many great ingredients in it – I’ve never tried a salsa with mango or pomegranate before. I’m definitely going to have to now!

  2. We love salmon at food to glow and pairing it with mango is always a winner with us too. Loving the addition of sweet-tart pomegranate: a pop of colour, contrasting taste and lovely anthocyanins. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I LOVE mango + pomegranate!I think it’s an absolutely perfect food pairing! I didn’t try it yet with salmon, so thank you for sharing this, I’ll make it soon :). Thanks a lot for sharing my Sriracha King Prawns with mango salsa recipe, which has pomegranate in too, obviously!

  4. I love all the bright colours in this salad, particularly the vibrant yellows from the mango, greens from the herbs and red from pomegranate. I will definitely be trying this, and thank you for including my tandoori salmon dish.

  5. Salmon salads rock! I did one recently with courgette/zucchini and it was amazing. Salmon is not only a great source of good stuff, but it is also very versatile. There is more than Sashimi and Grilled salmon.
    Thanks for the recipe!!
