Pan-Seared Salmon with Mango Salsa

Um, have you ever heard of the Amazon Treasure Truck?

LOL), I’m just so totally impressed. So basically, the Amazon Treasure Truck is a magical thing that exists only in Seattle. It s a vehicle that travels around the area, affixed with a bubblemeachine, tons of fishing lights, and other doodads, that brings deals to the area. Every day, a different deal is offered. What was the deal I partook in? 2lbs of fresh Coho salmon for $20. You guys that’s a crazy good deal.

And that is what I am more or less sharing with you today. I slightly adapted it, of course, but I think it’s so awesome they also included a recipe!

Side note: I think I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s so weird how much I like salmon now when I use to really not care for it very much… I don’t know what changed, lol.

So this dish… It’s very simply seared salmon, with the most amazing and refreshing mango salsa.

It just seems so perfect for Summer because you don;t have to turn on the oven, and it feels light and healthy enough. The salsa itself is sweet, with a bit of bite from the red onion and Serrano pepper, and a zing from the lime juice and cilantro. You guys, it is SO good on this salmon!

I served mine on a wild rice blend, and it was crazy tasty. I also ate leftover the next day with polenta—also tasty, but I will admit I like the rice better with it. And yes…It is still good as leftovers.
