Ingredients

Grilled Salmon:

  • 4 4-6 ounce filets of salmon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Mango Salsa:

  • 1 cucumber diced
  • 1 mango diced
  • ½ cup cilantro chopped
  • ½ jalapeno pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 garlic clove mashed
  • ½ cup red onion chopped
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • First, prepare the salsa.
  • Chop all of the salsa ingredients listed above, and toss everything together in a bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place the bowl in the refrigerator to marinate while you make the salmon.
  • Next, prepare the salmon.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper.
  • Rub the top and bottom of the salmon filets with the oil, and the coat the top of the salmon filets with the seasonings.
  • Grease a cast iron skillet with oil—don’t skimp on the oil because you don’t want the salmon to stick.
  • Turn the stove on to medium heat.
  • Once the pan is nice and hot, add the salmon filets skin side down (you want to get that skin nice and crispy before flipping to the other side).
  • After about 6 minutes, use a spatula and flip the salmon filets to the other side.
  • Cook for another 5-6 minutes, until the salmon is done to your liking.
  • Plate the salmon filets, drizzle with the lime juice, and top with the mango salsa.
  • Add any additional salt and pepper as needed.
  • Enjoy!
