Weekly Family Meal Plan #97
Grilled Salmon with Mango Salsa – NeighborFood
This salmon recipe is simple, grillable, and ideal for entertaining during BBQ season; especially great for late nights lingering on patios. The easy foil-grilled salmon has an intense smoky heat that pairs beautifully with sweet mango, red onions, and cilantro.
This recipe calls for a two pound salmon fillet that is perfect for feeding a crowd (or having leftovers all week). Using a larger piece of salmon helps the fish cook fully without drying out on the grill. The foil packet and the high, steady heat of the grill produces the most perfect, tender, juicy salmon.
The smoky, sweet rub makes it even more irresistible. Gently eat with a fork, and it watch it fall apart like a dream. This salmon is melt-in-your-mouth perfection! Now all it needs is a scoop of this fresh mango salsa, paired with your favorite wine for a complete meal. Let the entertaining begin!
