Salmon with Mango Sauce from the Caribbeans

Salmon with Mango Sauce from the Carribeans     (Epicurious)

In searching for recipes from the Virgin Islands and the Carribeans, I found a recipe, which I can't makes, as is, because it is not kosher, Shrimp with Mango Sauce.  I substituted Salmon for the shrimp and split a piece with hubby.  I was not sure if we would like it.  It has a number of spices and hubby is not a spice man but he liked it and I love it.  Hubby gave it a B+ and I gave it an A.  I would say B+ means, I can make it again, with both of us being happy.

With one piece of salmon, I cut down the spices but I am not sure, it would be useful to you, to give it, as a single serving, besides, I admit it, I didn't measure.

Salmon with Mango Sauce  (4 servings)  adapted


4 tsp canola oil

1/2 cup chopped red onion  (I id not have a red onion so I used a yellow one)

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ginger powder

3/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1 can mangoes  (I cut them into smaller pieces)

1/3 cup cider vinegar

2 tbsp fresh lime juice

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 piece of salmon

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Heat 2 tsp oil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat.

Cook onion, garlic, ginger, 1/4 tsp salt, allspice, cumin and cinnamon about 3 minutes.

Add mango, vinegar, lime juice and sugar and gently boil, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thick.

Toss salmon with red pepper, garlic powder and remaining 1/2 tsp salt.

Heat remaining 2 tsp oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook salmon until no longer raw inside.

We ate it hot, rather than cold.

  7. This sounds so good. I love the mangoes with the salmon, though I imagine it's good with the original shrimp, too.

  8. Chaya, you are the Salmon Queen!!! :-) I saw the loveliest mangoes at the market the other day and couldn't think of a thing to do with them. Now I simply have to try this!! :-)
