Honey Glazed Salmon with Mango Cilantro Relish

Last night for dinner, I kicked off summer with a great side of (easy) corn on the cob. Oh, and there was a main course, too. I’m trying to eat healthy (isn’t everyone always trying to eat healthy?) and salmon is one of the foods that I’m constantly hearing is so good for you, such great side effects, you’ll live longer, it’s good for your skin. Yes, I know it’s good for you. It’s tasty, yes, but sometimes it can get a little boring if you don’t try different salmon recipes.

So, here’s another one for you to add to your rotation of omega-3-happy entrees.

Honey Glazed Salmon with Mango Cilantro Relish

Serves 2:

2 pieces of salmon (I buy frozen and thaw in a  bowl of cold water for 15 minutes)
2 T honey
3 T soy sauce
1/4 t ground pepper
1 T olive oli

Sprinkle salmon with pepper, put the rest of the ingredients in a plastic bag and marinate for 30 minutes while you make the mango relish.
Saute in pan for 3-4 minutes each side or until salmon is easily flaked with a fork.
Serve with Mango Cilantro Relish (recipe below).

Mango Cilantro Relish

2 cups chopped mango
1/4 cup cilantro (more or less to taste)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 lime, juiced
1/2 t sea salt

Combine all ingredients and serve with Honey Glazed Salmon or eat with chips!
