Easy pan seared Salmon with sweet and spicy Mango Avocado Salsa recipe is a great 30 minutes meal! Plus, it’s Whole 30 and Paleo approved!



For Salmon:

  • 4 Salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime, juice
  • salt, pepper to taste

For Mango Avocado Salsa:

  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeno, fenely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • salt, pepper to taste


How to make Mango Salsa:

  1. Chop the ingredients (Mango, avocado, red bell pepper, jalapeno, red onion, and cilantro).
  2. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and lime juice, and mix it all up.
  3. You can also add some salt and pepper to taste.

How to make Pan Seared Salmon:

  1. Rinse and pat dry salmon fillets, then season with salt and pepper and squeeze lime juice over.
  2. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat and add two tablespoons of olive oil.
  3. NOTE: If you don’t follow a diet, I like to mix up 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. It will give you more flavor.
  4. Place the fish skin down and cover with a lid. Depending on the fillet size, cook for about 5-6 minutes, then flip it on another side and cook for another 5 minutes or until the salmon gets a beautiful golden/brown crisp.
  5. You can serve it in a bowl with cauliflower rice or just salmon with Mango Salsa by itself.
