Best Salmon With Mango Salsa Recipe 

Black Section Separator

Mango salsa and smoked salmon on the grill are a simple summer meal that you can make in a foil box. You can cook it on the stove or on the grill!


For the salmon: – 20 ounce (about 1.25 lb) salmon filet – Olive oil – 1 Tablespoon smoked paprika – 1 ½ teaspoons Kosher salt – ½ teaspoon black pepper – ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional – ½ teaspoon garlic powder – 3 Tablespoons honey – 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar For the mango salsa: – 2 large ripe mangoes, chopped (or substitute 2 cups frozen mango) – 1/2 small red onion, diced – 1/2 sweet bell pepper, chopped – 1 jalapeno (seeded if you don’t want a lot of heat), diced – Squeeze of lime – Lots of fresh chopped cilantro – Salt and pepper to taste


Warm up the grill until it's very hot (around 500 to 550 degrees). Apply olive oil to a big, strong piece of paper. 

Step 1

It should be possible to lay the salmon on top of the foil and wrap it all the way around. Rub the salmon on both sides with the spice mix.

Step 2

The honey and apple cider vinegar should be mixed together using a whisk. Spread the honey mixture out over the salmon that is on the paper. 

Step 3

Crimp the middle of the long sides together, then roll and crimp the short sides to seal them tightly.

Step 4

Put the foil box on the grill for nine minutes, and then carefully open it. Be careful, because steam will come out! Cover the grill and leave the foil packet open.

Step 5

 Grill for another 2 to 4 minutes, or until the fish flakes apart easily with a fork or the temperature gauge reads at least 130 degrees. 

Step 6

Take the plastic package off the grill very carefully. Loosely seal it again, and let it sit for five minutes.

Step 7

While that is going on, mix the mango salsa ingredients in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can make this ahead of time and put it in the fridge until you're ready to serve it.

Step 8

Before serving, put some salmon on each plate and some mango salsa on top of each one.
