Easy Mango Salsa Over Salmon

1 Mango, chopped
1/2 Red onion, chopped
1 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp minced fresh mint
1 Tbsp lime juice
16oz Wild Salmon

Mix all ingredients. Grill, bake, or pan-fry salmon. Top with salsa.


Notes:

Why wild salmon? It has a higher amount of omega-3 fatty acids than farm-raised salmon.

Think this recipe sounds expensive? Buy mango when it is on sale! Also, buy several pounds of wild salmon when it is on sale and freeze it. During the off season, you can find frozen wild salmon in many grocery stores.

Consider growing some of your favorite herbs. You just can't kill mint! I have a pot of mint that keeps coming back every year without having to do anything to it. Be sure to grow it in a pot because it will take over your yard or garden. Cilantro is also fairly easy to grow. This way you have herbs just waiting to be cut and cooked with. If you still don't feel like you are ready for this, buy the herbs and plan several recipes in the same week with those herbs. That way you'll be sure to get a lot of bang for your buck!
