1–2 lbs. fresh salmon
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Mango Avocado Salsa:
2 mangoes, diced
1 avocado, diced
1/4 cup minced cilantro
1/4 cup minced red onion
minced jalapeño (optional, to taste)
a drizzle of honey
a squeeze of lime juice + a little lime zest
salt to taste
Toss all ingredients in a bowl to combine. Taste, adjust, try not to eat the whole bowl.
Get the oven ready: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Salmon: Mix the spices and the olive oil to make a paste.
Place the salmon skin side down on the baking sheet. Rub the paste liberally over the top part of the salmon. Bake for 6-12 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon and your desired doneness.
If your salmon does not look crispy enough on top and you happen to have a torch… light it up!!
If you choose to do a bowl……
**Bowl it up: Pile up some rice, pull off some of salmon, and spoon that mango avocado salsa over the whole thing. Add a lime squeezer for good measure. IT’S SO GOOD.
