Indulge in our tender grilled salmon paired with a refreshing mango avocado salsa. A culinary delight for any occasion!


For the Salmon:

  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the Mango Avocado Salsa:

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped (optional, for some heat)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Marinate the Salmon:

  • In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  • Place the salmon fillets in a large resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the salmon, ensuring each fillet is well-coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, up to 2 hours.

Prepare the Grill:

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Make sure the grates are clean and well-oiled to prevent the salmon from sticking.

Grill the Salmon:

  • Remove the salmon from the marinade and let any excess drip off. Grill the salmon for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. The internal temperature should reach 145°F (63°C).

Make the Mango Avocado Salsa:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the diced mango, avocado, red onion, red bell pepper, cilantro, and jalapeño (if using).
  • Drizzle with fresh lime juice and gently toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


  • Place the grilled salmon on a serving platter or individual plates. Spoon the mango avocado salsa over the top of each salmon fillet.
  • Garnish with additional cilantro or lime wedges if desired.


  • Serve with a side of quinoa, rice, or a light summer salad to complete the meal.
  • For added flavor, you can also grill some lime halves alongside the salmon and squeeze the grilled lime juice over the fish just before serving.
  • If you don’t have a grill, you can use a grill pan on the stove or bake the salmon in the oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy this light, flavorful, and healthy summer dish that perfectly combines the richness of salmon with the refreshing taste of mango and avocado!
