Updated August 2, 2023

Experience the nutritious and flavorful combination of salmon and mango salsa in this super healthy dish. Whether you bake, grill, or poach the salmon, it always tastes amazing and pairs perfectly with the tender balsamic-infused flavor.

Salmon is a true superfood, packed with essential nutrients. Just one serving provides almost 100% of your recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and vitamin D. With low levels of mercury, it’s a safer choice compared to most other fish, promoting overall health.

The summery and vibrant mango and kiwi salsa not only adds freshness and flavor but also enhances the health benefits of the dish. This salsa is equally delicious with other types of fish and grilled chicken.

Kiwis are a powerhouse of nutrients, including fiber, vitamins C, E, and K, folate, and potassium. With less than 50 calories per kiwi, they make an excellent addition to a healthy diet.

Juicy mangoes are low in calories, regulate blood sugar levels, and improve memory. They contain dietary fiber, vitamins A and B6, folic acid, and important minerals. People have been enjoying mangoes as part of their diet for thousands of years.
