Sweet and Spicy Asian Salmon with Mango Slaw

by jerseygirl on May 26, 2016 · 0 comments

Asian Salmon with slawSalmon is one of my go to summer meals. It cooks really quick and these days I need all the extra time I can get. Things like school graduation planning, sports practices and field trip meetings have been cramping my cooking style.

I made this the other night and all of a sudden the weather turned warm. So feel free to make the salmon in the oven but if it’s a nice day out I’d probably grill it outside. Salmon is a really easy fish to grill and it eliminates any fishy smell in my kitchen.

Now for the part that you will really like. There are very few ingredients involved in this recipe. Yes, you will want to buy the salmon,  slaw mix and mango fresh but you will probably have the other ingredients in your pantry. I tend to buy salmon the day I am eating it because I want fish as fresh as possible.Salmon marinated

For the dressing on the slaw, I used a Thai  peanut vinaigrette I buy at Trader Joes but feel free to use your favorite Asian dressing. There are many good ones that you can find in your local grocery store.

Okay, so once you have the ingredients gathered, marinate the salmon and either roast or grill. The slaw can be made in advance or while the salmon is cooking. It’s just so easy! Enjoy!

Eggplant Parmesan

There is something about the weather getting warmer that makes me want to cook vegetarian meals. I could eat these eggplant Parmesan rounds once a week. It doesn’t even bother me that I have to turn my oven on. It’s much better than frying on the stove and also so much healthier. Make sure to […]

Lemon Dill Roasted Salmon

April 27, 2016

I grew up eating a lot of fish. My dad was from an island in Croatia so it was not uncommon for him to be grilling whole fish, eyeballs still intact and all. While my friends got to eat fish sticks at their houses, none of that was to be found at mine. Fish sticks […]

Simple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

March 21, 2016

While Brussels sprouts seem more like a fall or winter vegetable, I love eating them all year round. I’ve noticed lately that they are on plenty of restaurant menus and are all the rage in food magazines. A few weeks ago we even ordered them off a happy hour menu. They were crispy and coated with […]
