February Recipe of the month

In honor of National Heart Month, I wanted to post a recipe that is good for you and nurtures your heart. One of Alaska's greatest natural resources is our access to an amazing assortment of seafood. Of course, the salmon is the best so this recipe is a quick and fun MANGO salsa to put on top of cooked salmon. Original recipe can be found here.

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chile (include ribs and seeds for a hotter taste)
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 3 tbsp fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • Pepper to taste
  • diced red bell pepper
  • jicama
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and season to taste with pepper.

Adding some diced avocados can help take the edge off of any spiciness or ease it if it tastes too acidic. However, I think your taste buds will enjoy it over some salmon and I know your heart will enjoy the omegas!
