I cooked this meal tonight for my family, and we absolutely loved it!!! I could not find the harissa sauce, so I used Cayenne pepper instead. I also used some garlic seasoning to season the salmon. Everything turned out great! My grandmother loved the mango salsa. I thought the mango salsa brought the dish together by having a sour sweet taste!!! This recipe is definitively a keeper!!

We enjoyed this salmon for dinner tonight. I used prepared harissa sauce. I made no modifications other than that I was not able to rub both sides of the fish with the harissa as I could not get the skin off of the back of the fish until after it had already cooked. I liked the combination of cool (mango salsa) and spicy (harissa). This was quick to make for a weeknight meal. Thanks!

Delicious! I couldn't find harissa so used creol sauce -- but otherwise made as directed. Delish! Made for ZWT6. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
