For the Chunky Mango Salsa

  • 3 Mangos cubed
  • ½ red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 habaneros seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and diced
  • ½ cup cilantro chopped
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 lime

Other ingredients

  • Cilantro Lime Sauce (link in instructions!)


How to bake salmon:

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with foil big enough to cover the and enclose the salmon.
  • In a small bowl mix together salt, pepper, garlic, melted butter, and lemon juice.
  • Place the salmon on the foil then pour the butter mixture over it. Fold the foil over the salmon to create a pouch.
  • Bake until salmon is fully cooked 10-15 minutes.
  • The salmon should flake easily with the use of a fork.
  • Enjoy

How to make chunky mango salsa:

  • Combine cubed mango, chopped bell pepper and cilantro, diced habaneros and jalapenos, and cumin and salt in a bowl.
  • Squeeze the lime over the mango salsa and stir! For extra lime you can zest the lime peel into the salsa.
  • This will make a lot of salsa so have some chips on hand to eat up what you don’t use on your tacos!

Make your tacos:

  • Fry up some tortilla shells
  • Add salmon then top with salsa! I also recommend adding some of my easy cilantro lime sauce!
  • Enjoy!
