Sweet and Savory Salmon

The perfect mix of sweet and savory. Enjoy this pan seared salmon topped with a fresh, citrus fruit salsa.

Serves: 5 (Serving = 1 salmon fillet with 3/4 cup salsa)


Fruit Salsa

  • 1 mango, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup diced strawberries
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon poppy seeds
  • Zest of 1 large lime


  • 1 ½ pound salmon fillet
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free garlic spice blend (like Mrs. Dash®)
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. In a small bowl, combine all fruit salsa ingredients and mix together; Set aside.
  2. Season both sides of the salmon with the spice blend.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil. Place salmon in heated oil, searing until browned on all sides (approximately 1-2 minutes on each side). The surfaces of each piece will be slightly crisp, but the flesh will still be light pink and moist in the center of its thickest parts.
  4. Top cooked salmon fillet with salsa.
