I am so excited to share this recipe with everyone! Last month Randall Beans asked if I could create a recipe that was “easy and elegant.” As I came up with the idea of Mango Black Bean Relish over Blackened Salmon, I knew it was going to be a great combination of flavors, but I didn’t fully realize how amazing this was going to taste! This is one of my favorite things I’ve eaten in a long time, and Aldo agrees.
The Mango Black Bean Relish is so fresh and light, with just the right amount of fruity mango and citrusy lime juice to pull it all together. The relish complements the smoky, slightly spicy blackened Cajun salmon, and every bite is just perfect together.
I served this over Mango Black Bean Relish over Blackened Salmon with mashed cauliflower, and it would go great with so many other side dishes – grits, rice (cilantro lime rice would be awesome!), mashed potatoes.
The whole recipe is super easy and quick to make, and it is super healthy. I also love how colorful it is – this will look gorgeous on your dinner plate! 🙂
Mango Black Bean Relish over Blackened Salmon
- 4 small salmon fillets

- 1 mango
- 1 small red bell pepper
- 1 14-oz can black beans , drained and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves , chopped
- 2 scallions , chopped
- Juice of 1/2 lime (about 1 tablespoon)

- Freshly ground black pepper , to taste
For the salmon:
For the relish:
- Peel and dice the mango into small pieces (about 1/4 - 1/3 inch). Remove the seeds and the pith from the red bell pepper and dice the bell pepper into small pieces about the same size as the mango.
- In a large bowl, combine the diced mango, bell pepper, black beans, cilantro leaves, scallions, lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix well and let sit for a few minutes before serving to allow the flavors to fuse together
