Salmon is so good for you! It’s an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids (aka “brain food”.) It’s also packed with vitamin D which is vital for maintaining your overall health. One 100g serve of salmon can provide you with a day’s worth of vitamin D.
This Grilled Salmon with Mango Papaya Salsa recipe is amazing! The mix of sweet and tangy mango papaya salsa and grilled salmon together create a burst of complimenting flavors. The great thing about this grilled salmon recipe is that it can be made ahead of time and paired with a salad or a side of quinoa or asparagus.
If making grilled salmon intimidates you, don’t worry! It’s really easy. Simply, make sure the gates are cleaned, preheat the grill until the grates are nice and hot, and let the fish cook with the lid closed as much as possible for at least 5-6 minutes before flipping it.
Don’t have a grill or the weather simply doesn’t permit? You can use a stove top grill pan or bake the salmon. It’ll turn out just as nice as the grill.
