This is the best tasting salmon!! This was my first attempt at making salmon (don't make a lot of seafood at home, no one else eats it), I usually eat it when we go out, and this was better than a lot that I have had! The mango I got was not fully ripened so I added a little extra honey for the sweetness. The mango glaze made it so flavorful and the little bit of browning/crusting on top was perfect! This is going into my Best of cookbook and will be made again!! Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #60.
This is a definite five star recipe and one that we will be enjoying often this summer... The flavour of the glaze is outstanding and smells wonderful whilst cooking.. The only change I made was to add an extra tablespoon of honey as I found it to be little to vinegary with just the one. I also added a little more of both the ginger and coriander.. The ginger was only because after I had chopped it up I realised it was more than 1 tablespoon and the coriander is that I needed to use up what I had left.. Both ingredients were not upped by much.. I made the glaze in the morning and just put it in the fridge so it made for a very quick and easy dinner to throw together when I got in.. I served ours over a couscous salad for totally delicious dinner.. This was a big hit for us Pat thanks for sharing and can recommend it greatly.. A truly delicious way to serve salmon..
