Orange Lime Salmon with Mango Salsa is simple, nutritious and versatile. You can bake or grill this salmon, eat it aside a salad and side dish or over a bed of greens. The sweet, fruity flavors fair nicely with the salmon and make it a family favorite.



  • For the Marinade:
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • 8 oz Alaskan Sockeye Salmon {2-4oz filets}
  • For the Mango Salsa:
  • 1/2 mango, chopped into cubes
  • 1/2 cup tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, stems removed, loosely packed and chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeƱo, seeds removed and chopped {optional for spice}
  • Salt to taste


  1. In a large ziplock bag mix together the lime juice, orange juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the salmon to the bag and fully coat with the lime marinade. Let the salmon marinade in the refrigerator overnight, or at least for two hours.
  2. When ready to cook the salmon preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a baking dish put the salmon skin side down and pour the lime marinade over the salmon. Season lightly with more salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the salmon for 12-15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
  4. While the salmon cooks combine the mango salsa ingredients in a medium bowl and mix to combine.
  5. Remove the salmon from the oven and serve garnished with fresh chopped cilantro and the mango salsa.
