Pan seared salmon with a mango, red pepper, and red onion salsa is fresh, healthy, and delicious. Transport yourself to a Caribbean beach with this easy dinner idea.
The warm weather is slowly coming to Connecticut. We just had our first Spring day in the 70’s and I’m already thinking of my garden and all the fresh, homemade salsa! Last year I grew tomatoes and peppers and used them both in my peach salsa and blueberry basil salsa.
I wanted to grill the salmon for this recipe, but my husband claims I didn’t ask him to make sure we had gas for the grill. It’s what I like to call selective hearing! Oh well, it all worked out because pan searing this salmon then finishing it in the oven is my favorite way to cook salmon if its not on the grill. Plus, it allowed me to prep the salsa at the same time, making this a 30-minute meal!
