First I wanted to Congratulate Jessica Kuligowski for winning the Peanut Butter & Jelly GIVEAWAY that was going on!
And now onto a yummy recipe with a funny story to go along with it!
The night I made this salmon was pretty eventful. I usually do my cooking and meal prep while my kids are taking naps. But this day it didn't quite work out like that. So it was pure chaos in the kitchen come 5:00. So trying to have a meal on the table by 5:30 when my husband walked in from work took was pushing it. I had the coconut rice, Cuban black beans, and peach mango salsa done and I had the salmon marinating during the day so I went to go grab it and then turn on the grill to heat up. Well I went to light the grill and BOOM! my hair and hair brows singed off in the front! I pretty sure I blacked out for a little bit but then recovered and couldn't stop laughing. I could not believe that every time I touched my hair it began to crumble off and come out in clumps. I took a picture to send to my husband and sister who is a hair dresser to show them what had happened! Everyone seemed to think that it was hilarious since it wasn't them! Well I put the salmon on the grill which was lit and on low. Cooked the salmon up and put it on the table for my family to enjoy with the peach mango salsa on top!
Asian Salmon with Peach Mango Salsa
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 Tablespoons soy sauce
3 Tablespoons orange juice
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
Combine together and place over 1 salmon filet. Marinade for a couple hours. Then place salmon on a hot grill for 5 minutes on each side. (You can always double the marinade and save half of it and pour on the salmon after it is cooked)
Peach Mango Salsa
3 peaches, diced
1 mango, diced
1/2 jalepano, completely cleaned out (or not if you like it spicy)
1/3 purple onion, thinly diced
3 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
juice of 1/2 lime
Combine all ingredients. Pour over salmon after it is cooked!
