My Recipe: Salmon with Spicy Mango Salsa

Salmon with mango salsa


  • Salmon fillet
  • Fresh mango (diced)
  • chili padi (depends on how spicy you want it)
  • Capsicum (diced)
  • Onion (diced)
  • half lemon juice
  • Chinese parsley (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Fish sauce
  • Salt + pepper
  • Olive oil


  1. In a big bowl, mix the diced mango + diced capsicum + diced chili padi + diced onion + finely chopped chinese parsley + fish sauce +sprinkle salt and pepper + squeeze fresh lemon on it…. mix mix mix and put it into fridge
  2. Place the salmon on a chopping board, score the skin crosswise about one half inch deep for the entire salmon ( to prevent the fillet from curling while cooking and also make it cooked nice and evenly – Gordon Ramsay’s tips)
  3. Open each score and sprinkle salt and pepper into the cut. I also add the lemon juice to the entire salmon.
  4. Heat the un-stick pan and add olive oil when the pan is hot. Cook the salmon, skin-side down for 2-3 minutes depending on thickness.
  5. Turn and cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side. Tilt the pan, and cook for another minute.
  6. Turn off the fire and cover the pan with the lids. I let it cook by itself which it give the salmon more tender and juicer
  7. Place the hot salmon on the plate, pour it with the juice from the pan. Place the spicy mango salsa on the top and garnish it with the remaining chinese parsley. Serve well with baked/ smashed potato.
  8. Enjoy this healthy yet yummy dish

Bon appetite~ lil[10]
