Baked Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa


This recipe is super simple but makes for an impressive meal and a fun date night in.

makes 3 servings ( perfect for a little leftovers!) I love working fish into my weekly meals to ensure I get my omega 3's along with a laundry list of other micronutrients.


Ingredients:

- 11 oz Salmon

- 1 can lite coconut milk

- 1 1/2 c brown rice

- 1 avocado

- 1 mango

- 1 diced red bell pepper

- 1/3 cup cilantro

- lime juice

- zest of 1 lime

- 1 tbsp. olive oil

- 1/4 c chopped red onion

- 1 tbsp. minced garlic


Directions:


Salmon-

  1. preheat oven to 450 F

  2. slice salmon into 3 portion pieces (about 3.5 oz each)

  3. brush lightly with olive oil and place skin side down on a baking sheet (parchment paper may aid in preventing sticking

  4. spread minced garlic over salmon

  5. bake for about 12 - 15 minutes or until flaking can be observed when pressed gently with a fork

 

Mango Avocado Salsa-

  1. dice mango, avocado, red onion, and red bell pepper into similar sized cubes, mix together

  2. chop cilantro and add to salsa mix

  3. dress with remaining olive oil and a light coating of lime juice

 

Coconut Cilantro Rice-

This side dish is my lazy college student rendition of one of my moms recipes. I just cooked my rice in a pot over the stove using coconut milk and lime juice rather than water, I stirred in some chopped cilantro to finish it off. You can make this with whatever method to cook rice you choose.
