The kiwi-mango relish with cilantro adds a wonderful flavour to this easy salmon recipe. If you are not fond of cilantro you will want to cut back a bit as it can be strong. It does not take a lot of time to prepare. My 12 year old made this for dinner one night (with very little supervision) and did a fantastic job. She found this recipe in my Cooking Light magazine.

This was almost a 5 star recipe. Just a couple of minor changes and I think it would be perfect. First, I had issues witht he salmon burning, I would recommend turning the heat down when you cook the fish. Second, the salsa needed a jalapeno. I just thought it was missing that extra little kick to make it perfect. Really, it was a very good recipe though and both my husband and I really enjoyed it.
