Grilled Blackened Salmon with Mango Pico De Gallo

Grilling season is upon us (even if the weather isn’t). If you would like an idea besides the norms…try this Grilled Blackened Salmon with Mango Pico De Gallo. Grilling fish is easier than you think and I wish we did it more often!

Every night I have off during the Spring/Summer, we BBQ so honestly I haven’t been seeing too much of the kitchen lately. We have been using our Weber grill and love it! I still do the prepping, marinating, sides, things like that. I wanted to do something different than our usual steaks, brats, burgers… so I grabbed some King Salmon from a mobile fish market and whipped up some pico. The pico is actually super easy I don’t know why I don’t make it more often. All you do is dice onion, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro, mango, and squeeze some lime juice over it! Boom done…fresh healthy addition to your meal.

Then add some blackened seasoning and lime juice to the salmon.grilled salmon 2.jpg

Then cook the Salmon skin side down for a few minutes, then flip and cook  a few minutes longer.

Top with the mango Pico De Gallo and enjoy! This Pico de gallo  recipe makes a little extra for snacking, too. So if you don’t want extra just cut the recipe in half!
