Citrus Herb Salmon with a Mango Pico and Cilantro Lime Rice

Jump to recipe

It doesn’t get any tastier (or easier) than this delicious Citrus Herb Salmon topped with a sweet and spicy Mango Pico on a bed of Cilantro Lime Brown Rice.  Ready in 30 minutes (yep, even the brown rice), this is the perfect healthy meal to serve your family. 
Salmon is one of the girls’ favorite protein.  I can serve it up for dinner with a side of rice or couscous all the time and still have a happy family.  We have salmon almost once a week so I’m constantly trying to find different ways to cook it.

So many reasons, where do I start?  Here are why this is perfect for me!

  • Salmon is a kid friendly fish even if kids refuse other seafood.  Even better, it only takes 15 minutes to bake in the oven.
  • Each salsa bite has a good balance of sweet, spicy, tangy, and salty.  And if you don’t have fresh mangoes, substitute it out with pineapple or peaches.
  • The whole meal including the brown rice is done in 30 minutes ( I do use the instant pot for the brown rice).  You can also make the brown rice ahead of time a few days early to save yourself some work.

Here are the tools I used for this recipe:
