If ever a dish embodied summer, this is it. So bright and bursting with beachy flavors, this is like a culinary "Saved By the Bell" and "Beverly Hills 90210" (the original, okay!) rolled into one satisfying dish. Flaky salmon smothered in a juicy, mildly spicy mango salsa is a great excuse to dust off the outdoor grill and get some coals going. It’s paired with garlicky sautéed spinach for a healthy dish full of quality protein, fiber, and sweet-and-savory flavor.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Throughly rinse produce and pat dry. Halve lime. Mince garlic. Remove jalapeño stem, membrane (spiny white innards), and seeds. Cut remaining jalapeño into fine dice. Stem and chop cilantro. Cut red onion into a fine dice. With a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from mango. Stand the peeled mango up and slice around the core. Then cut slices into a dice.

    Make the Mango Salsa

    In a clean mixing bowl, combine half the garlic, red onion to taste (the flavor can be strong for some), mango, jalapeño, cilantro (reserving a pinch for garnish), juice of the lime to taste, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix together. Place in refrigerator to chill before serving.

  • Step 3 - Grill the Salmon

    Grill the Salmon

    Rub salmon with the Cajun Seasoning, ensuring all sides are coated. Warm a grill pan or medium pan on the stove over medium-high heat, or warm your outdoor grill to 375°F. Spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Once hot, add the salmon filets and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until fish is firm. Keep warm until ready to serve.

  • Step 4 - Sauté the Spinach

    Sauté the Spinach

    In a medium pan, warm 1 tsp. olive oil and remaining garlic over medium heat for 1 minute, or until aromatic. Add the spinach and allow to cook for another 2 minutes, or until lightly wilted and bright green. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside warm until ready to serve.

  • Step 5 - Plate the Dish
