Salmon with Mango & Avocado Salsa

Oven-roasted salmon fillets served with a bright, zingy mango and avocado salsa, packed with flavour. This healthy salmon dish is super tasty, easy to make and comes together in just 15 minutes – perfect for a quick lunch or weeknight dinner. Like your salsa extra spicy? Add an extra chilli or opt for a hotter chilli, like a finger chilli or scotch bonnet pepper (if you dare!).

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Category: Fish


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
For the mango & avocado salsa:
  • ¼ red onion, minced
  • 1 red chilli, minced
  • 5 g fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 100 g fresh mango, cut into small cubes
  • 1 medium avocado, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tbsp freshly-squeezed lime juice, or more to taste
  • ¼ tsp sea salt, or to taste
  • a good pinch of freshly-ground black pepper


  1. Heat oven to 200℃ /fan 180℃. Line a baking tray with foil. Rub the salmon fillets with a drizzle of olive oil and season well with sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper. Most of the flavour comes from the salsa so I’ve kept the seasoning plain, but feel free to spice it up! I often add chilli flakes and garlic granules. Roast in the foil-lined baking tray for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fillets, or until just opaque and easily flaked with a fork.
  2. While the salmon is roasting, make the mango and avocado salsa. Combine the ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. To serve, arrange the salmon fillets on a plate and top with the mango and avocado salsa. Enjoy!
