I am a big fan of mango as well as salmon, and to put them together with some kick in the sauce, generated a meal that I called dangerously delicious because one (read: me) ended up eating more than was planned.
But if you are lucky enough to have leftovers from this meal, you can put them together, cold, for the next day's lunch, and have a delicious and tasty meal ready to eat as it is.
After putting salt and pepper on the salmon slices, I smother them with the hot mango salsa, tossed few red peppers on top of the salsa, and set in the oven with the potatoes.
The goal with the size of the potatoes is that they are done at the same time as the fish, that took in my oven about 30 minutes.
If you don't want to prepare the mango salsa yourself, most well-stocked grocery stores sell a ready made salsa. Just make sure it is not milk product based (sour cream), and the ingredients in it tolerate baking (no cucumbers in it, for example). If using a ready made salsa, this meal is easy to prepare in just minutes time before setting it in the oven for about 30 minutes.
Like said, it was a delightful meal, with lots of flavors and appetizing colors. A great idea to prepare for your mom - if your country is celebrating Mother's Day this weekend!
I hope you enjoy it. Till next time
I'm a chef and a pastry chef, and I love food. Preparing a meal for someone is a show of love; for your craft, for the ingredients, and for the ones eating.
