My husband said I should always make the salmon like this. The salsa is very good on the salmon and would probably be good on chicken or pork, which I will try in the future for variety. With the leftover salsa I found myself putting it on a ritz cracker as a snack.
My mistakes. Too hot salsa. I used lime instead of lemon. Bad idea!
The salsa could have benefitted from a little lime juice and snipped cilantro, but other than that, this was pretty good. Oh, I use the '10mins per inch thickness' for baking salmon, and it turned out perfectly. Thanks, Tawnea!
I didn't bake the salmon but prepared it in my stovetop smoker. The salsa was an excellent accompaniment! Added a little cilantro. Good recipe to use for grilled salmon.
AMAZING!!! this fruit salsa should be put on everything you make. incidentally - i put 1/4 cup of mango in the salsa, and only one garlic clove, and instead of 1/2 cup of pineapple juice, i just wrung out the pineapple over it. (i had hollowed it out for the most part by picking at it while i cooked)
Absolutely loved it!!! The salsa was so delicious- added extra jalapenos to one half and left the other half without because my brother can't stand spicy food. I prefered the spicier version. Definately will make again.
The salmon was definitely tasty and the baked limes added some aesthetic appeal. I added mango to the salsa, as I had some laying around. It was a nice addition. And I used Thai chilis, because you can't get jalepenos where I live (in Taiwan).
I do have to say that the cold salsa seemed a little out of place with the fresh-from-the-oven salmon. It was also quite pepper heavy, which would be a turn-off for people who are undecided about peppers. I would also let the salsa sit in the fridge for an hour or two before serving, so the pepper essence can soak into the juice a bit more. I'll most likely make it/a close version of it again. Yum.
A very fresh and healthy tasting dish. I've made this twice now and the first time i was a little nervous of using 2 jalapeños because my mom really can't do spicy food so I only used one and absolutely no spice or heat could be tasted. The second time i used both jalapeños and its was MUCH better. The heat really wasn't much but it was just enough to give the dish a little zing. Will definitely be making this again!
