Grilled Salmon with Mango and Tomato Salsa

Serves 6
Ingredient list: 
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 4-oz portions of salmon
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cup diced mango
  • 1 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  1. Preheat the grill to medium high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cinnamon, and salt. Sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over the salmon fillets.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grates with the canola oil. Place the salmon on the grill, skin side down. Cook uncovered for 7 to 8 minutes, turning halfway through. The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
  4. While salmon is cooking, combine mango, tomatoes, cilantro, and half of the lemon juice in a medium bowl.
  5. Remove salmon from grill and spritz with remaining lemon juice. Serve each fillet with 1/2 cup salsa.
