Image source: The Today Show



  • 1 whole Salmon Fillet (about 2 pounds with skin removed)
  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar (*optional)
  • Kosher Salt and Ground Black Pepper, to taste


  • 1 ripe Mango (peeled, seeded, and diced)
  • 2 Green Onions (finely sliced)
  • 1/4 cup Lime Juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 Jalapeño (minced)
  • 1 – 2 Avocados (peeled, pitted, and diced)
  • 1 small handful Fresh Cilantro Leaves
  • Kosher Salt and Ground Black Pepper, to taste



Prepare a gas or charcoal grill to medium to heat (about 350°F) or pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Lay the whole salmon filet on top of a baking sheet, making sure none of the salmon is hanging off. Drizzle the salmon with olive oil and sprinkle with brown sugar (optional) salt and black pepper.

Place the baking sheet on the grill or into the oven and close the grill or oven. If you are grilling, grill for about 12 – 15 minutes and check for doneness. If you are baking, bake for about 15 – 18 minutes. The salmon is done when it’s uniformly pink in the center.

Using tongs or a large grill safe spatula, remove the salmon and transfer to a flat surface to cool.


Combine the mango, green onion, lime juice, cherry tomatoes, jalapeño, avocado and cilantro in a bowl. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.

To serve

Top the salmon with the salsa and serve whole.

Yields: 6 servings
