2 tblsp coconut oil
2 ripe mangos, peeled and diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup red onion, minced
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, stems removed and chopped
1 jalapeño, seeds removed and minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground cumin
pinch cayenne pepper
juice from 1 lime
1 tblsp olive oil
In a large bowl, stir all the mango salsa ingredients together. Refrigerate to keep cool. In a large skillet, melt coconut oil over medium-high heat. Season salmon fillets with sea salt and pepper. When the oil is hot, fry the fillets flesh side down and cook for 2 minutes. Flip over and cook on the skin side for 2 more minutes, or until the fish has a golden sear on both sides. Place salmon fillets on individual plates and top with lots of mango salsa.
