When I was living in Australia, I developed a very strong love for mangoes. Besides eating them plain – which is my favorite thing to do! – and making yummy popsicles, I love incorporating mangoes in savory dishes. Just like peaches, they make amazing salsa and are delicious with white meat and fish (this White Fish with Mango and Lime Salsa recipe is still one of my favs!) So when mangoes were on special the other at my local (Canadian) store, I didn’t hesitate for a second.

I don’t know if they’re in season in Canada at the moment, but they were delicious. I’m guessing they’re imported? I must admit I didn’t check. Anyways! I made a quick and easy jam with them and it took me about 30 minutes all together. I then used it as a topping for the salmon and wow, what a great combo! It’s not the prettiest dish but I seriously loved this pairing.

I think you could use store-bought mango jam if you’re in a hurry or can’t find mangoes, but it won’t be as good! And don’t skip the hot pepper flakes. Because this recipe is very simple, all the ingredients count! Enjoy 🙂

  1. Hi Marie
    As long as you don’t mind I am going to share your recipe for the salmon but my business partner and I am I get cranberry mango jelly so they can simply bypass the making of the mango. But I’m definitely giving you credit on the rest of your stuff I won’t post this for a couple days because I have other things I want to post so let me know if you’re OK on this. And kudos to you when I typed up mango recipes you came up first. I live on cape cod so salmon wasn’t my first local thought even though it’s my fav ????
