Ready In:




  • 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • 2. Cut mango in to halves (watch for the pit) and peel off the skin. Julienne the mango in to long strips.
  • 3. As sizes and amounts will vary, take aprox. 1/4 of the mango strips and place them in to a food processor or blender and puree them until a thick liquid is formed. Set the remaining 3/4 of the mango strips aside.
  • 4. Mix together the mango puree, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, lemon juice, and brown sugar in a small bowl to form the sauce for the salmon.
  • 5. Place the salmon filets in a shallow baking pan lined with foil. Heavily baste the salmon filets with the sauce, and pour remaining sauce around filets.
  • 6. Mix together remaining mango strips, cinnamon, and sugar. Make sure that all mango strips are evenly coated.
  • 7. Place mango strips around the salmon filets.
  • 8. Sprinkle the filets and mango strips wit hthe crushed red pepper.
  • 9. Fold up the sides of foil so that all ingrediants remain touching throughout the baking process.
  • 10. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork.
  • *larger filets may need longer cooking time.

    This is great but don't cover with foil to bake. Dinner was delicious with quinoa but, salmon took too long. Will make again with modifications.

    Nice idea, but the sweet / sour was not tweaked well, in my opinion. Next time I will use much less lemon juice and more sweetener. Which brings me to my next point: sugar? Sugar is not good for you. I substituted honey.

    The salsa looks kind of disgusting, but it tastes GREAT!

    Very tasty as has been said. Low calorie also. Adjust the lemon or lime juice/sugar mixture to suit your own taste. Same goes for the red pepper flakes. I also cooked in a foil packet to keep everything together and in contact. The fish is actually "boiled" in the juices of the fruit. I will make this again. Jim in So Calif

    This was very good. The mango puree/spice combo was delicious and the sliced mango on top enhanced the flavor of the puree. It was just the right amount of sauce for two fillets. I put the mango and seasonings into the food process all at once to blend. I cooked the salmon in foil packets rather than a pan (I used heavy duty aluminum foil). I baked for 12 minutes and let the salmon sit in the sealed packets for another 2-3 minutes. Will make again. Thanks for posting!
