"This baked salmon preparation is an appealing low calorie main dish. Seasoned with brown sugar, cilantro and lemon-pepper, and paired with white rice flavored with mangos, cilantro, and lemon zest, it makes a satisfying meal." — Joanna

This was good but would have been better with a few alterations. Mainly, I wouldn't have baked the rice with the fish. My rice was cooked and when I put it in with the fish it ended up getting rather crispy in the oven. I would mix the rice and heat it up on the stove to mix in the flavors and then serve the fish on top.
I made it as directed (with brown rice). The coriander was mild and the flavor nice, but we didn't really like the texture--too crunchy. But the bigger issue was the rice. If I did it again, we'd cut the mango up very small and mix it with more rice. Instead of the tastes blending, it was just like chunks of mango mixed with rice.
We love this so much because it is so simple and taste. I did not have coriander seed so I did not use it.
This was a really great way to serve salmon. I also cooked the rice mixture seperately to the salmon and cooled it as a salad type side dish, as well as adding raisins. The salmon just melted in my mouth and I enjoyed the fresh flavour of the mango and cilantro.
Next time I'll cut WAY back on the coriander. It was overwhelming. I didn't make the rice as directed. My mango wasn't ripe enough and my rice wasn't cooked, so I added about 1/2 cup of mango chutney, some peach mango juice, and a tiny can of pineapple tidbits (juice and all) to the raw rice and adjusted the cooking water accordingly. The family loved it.
This was a very easy way to fix salmon. I love salmon but get tired of traditional recepies. The tropical flavor was great and reminded me of be back in the Bahamas.
I made this for a dinner party and it was a big hit! The mango really adds to the salmon. I made the rice with the salmon and it wasn't too crispy.
easy and yummy
