For me, summer is all about fun and of course... food. I love the food this season brings; grilled tuna by the beach, Skewered pineapple and fruits, summer barbecues and the never ending cold cocktails and iced drinks.
Although our favorite season is quite hot than usual, I will make it hotter even more with my top-picked summer recipe inspired from the great collection of easy, breezy, sunny recipes of my favorite food websites: Norwegian Salmon Baked in a Bed of Mango Salsa. This summer dish was made out of fresh flavors of summer fruit and herb...and bursting with vibrant summer color too!
Cooked low and slow, this fruity and succulent baked salmon is a perfect dinner for summer evenings to celebrate summer season with your family and friends even if you are at home. This dish will definitely tell you, hey it's summer.
250 grams Norwegian Salmon (Frabelle Foods)
red onion, sliced or chopped
1. Preheat oven to 250F. Season salmon with salt and white pepper and let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
2. Grab a pan big enough to hold all fillets in single layer. Make a bed of bed of mango salsa - combine diced mango and sliced red onion.
3. Place the salmon fillets on the bed of mango salsa and cook for 30 minutes. Note: if you're cooking more than 4 fillets, just add another 2 minutes per additional filet.
Recommended but not required: Top with whatever finishing herbs and spices or ingredients you'd like; crushed macadamia nuts and mint, minced scallions or parsley.
After cooking, the salmon is going to look almost exactly the same as when you first put it in. Don’t worry, after 30 minutes in the oven it is cooked. To test for doneness, stick a sharp paring knife in, if it goes in an out very easily, its done.
