Salmon with Roasted Chile-Mango Sauce

Jolayne Cooper


I had to share this one. I got the recipe from We love salmon and when I saw the Chile-Mango Sauce, I had to try it. We loved it and our guests loved it. There were no leftovers. Try it, you will love it too.

15 Min




3 tsp
extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 c
thinly slices shallot
2 tsp
coriander seed
1 1/2
dried red chiles
medium ripe (slightly soft) mango
2 Tbsp
finely chopped fresh cilantro
4 clove
1/2 tsp
1 lb
salmon fillet

Directions Step-By-Step

Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, coriander and chile(s); cook, stirring, until the shallot begins to brown and the spices smell fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Transfer the shallot mixture to a food processor or blender. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and mango. Process until almost smooth (it will be slightly gritty from the bruised coriander seed). Transfer the sauce to a small bowl; stir in 1 tablespoon cilantro.
Combine garlic and salt in a small bowl. Spread the salted garlic on top of the slamon. Place the salmon, garlic side up, on the prepared broiling pan. Broil, 3-4 inches from heat, until opaque in the center, 8-14 minutes, depending on the thickness. Serve the salmon topped with the sauce and sprinkled with the remaining 1 tablespoon cilantro.
Note: I don't like cilantro, so I didn't put it in the sauce. I imagine that doing so, would make the sauce more of a green color to contrast in color from the salmon.

Also, my picture is with a 3 1/2 pound salmon fillet since I had guests for dinner, so I tripled the recipe for the sauce.
