    I love how easy and delicious this Blackened Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa is. I made it few weeks ago when we had family visiting. I wanted to serve something that is easy to prepare for 8 people but also delicious. I think everyone loved this dish, the mango avocado salsa adds a lot of freshness to this dish, and while the dressing is very simple, it’s absolutely fantastic and so flavorful. The lime juice is the star of the dressing. The mango avocado salsa goes wonderfully with the blackened salmon. I think Salmon is easily my favorite fish. I love it grilled, baked, smoked. You name it, I love it! Do you have a favorite way to prepare or marinate salmon? If so, let me know in the comments!

    I am so excited to share this recipe with you. This easy Blackened Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa is such an easy recipe and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. You are not a fan of mango, you can easily use stone fruits like peaches or nectarines.

    This looks so good- The salsa I’d eat with a spoon and the SALMON- Yum!

    This looks astoundingly good!

    This looks so fresh and delicious, especially that salsa!!!


    MANGO + AVOCADO = MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN`!!!
    Amazing recipe!!!

    Looks beautiful! And I love that mango salsa on top, I once made a crispy chicken dish with a mango salsa that was awesome too!

    We eat salmon almost once a week – we love it! Next time, I’ll have to make up a batch of that mango salsa, it looks and sounds fantastic!

    This looks so good, Neli!! I love salmon and I don’t make it nearly enough. We have been eating a ton of mango salsa though…time to pick up some salmon and put the two of them together!

    What a delicious, healthy meal! I love salmon, and also love mango salsa — so this sounds just about perfect!

    This looks really healthy and delicious. <3 I've made a similar one too but serving it with rice, now I think quinoa is a really good alternative.

      Thanks, Juventia! I have served this with rice too, and it’s delicious too. I just prefer to eat more quinoa since it’s more nutritious.

    I, too, love salmon. Years ago I read a recipe that called for marinating the salmon in orange juice for nearly 2 hrs. It’s simply wonderful. It gives the salmon just a little extra flavor but unless someone saw you prepare the salmon, they’d never know it was marinated in orange juice.


    Fantastic salmon recipe here; we are very much into grilling and making salsas this summer and since we love salmon, this recipe is a natural shoe-in for us! Thanks so much for sharing.
