Ingredients

  • PINEAPPLE MANGO SALSA prepare salsa a day ahead if possible
  • 1 pineapple diced
  • 1 mango diced
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1 jalapeno diced
  • handful fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 lime
  • salt
  • BAKED CHILI SALMON
  • 3-4 salmon fillets
  • 1/2 lemon
  • salt
  • 1/2 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Butter
  • 1/2 lemon
  • salt

Instructions

  • Prepare the salsa by adding pineapple, mango, red onion, jalapeno, and fresh cilantro into a large bowl.
  • Drizzle with lime juice and sprinkle with salt.
  • Mix well to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Place salmon fillets in a casserole dish lined with foil.
  • Drizzle both sides of salmon with lemon juice.
  • Sprinkle both sides generously with salt.
  • Combine chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, brown sugar and black pepper.
  • Sprinkle both sides of salmon generously with the chili mixture.
  • Place a long slice of butter on top of each fillet.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. (I always keep a really close eye on them, checking often after the 12 minute mark.) Salmon will be tender and flaky when cooked to perfection.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Plate the salmon and top with pineapple mango salsa.

Notes

~TIPS~
Try using smoked salt for a grilled flavor.
Add diced avocados and tomatoes for a new level of freshness!
