  2. Mix all together


  1. Place fry pan on medium – medium high heat
  2. Put salmon in, skin side down. As the fish cooks, the colour of the fish will begin to lighten. When the colour has lightened to nearly the top, you can flip it. Cooking the salmon will take about 6 -9 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon
  3. Cook on other side for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from gas.  Turn off gas

To serve:  

Serve salmon with salsa on top and a wedge of lemon.


  • You may like to change what you put in the salsa – you could try adding coriander or chilli or avocado. You could also put a bit of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. If you don’t have access to fresh mango, you can use canned slices.


  • Fridge- eat the next day only
  • Do not freeze
