  • 4 small salmon fillets
  • 4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (use more or less to taste, or try it with chili powder instead!)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 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)
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt (or more to taste)
  • Freshly ground black pepper , to taste


For the salmon:

  • Season each salmon fillet with about 1 teaspoon Cajun spice. Heat the olive oil in a large pan, and cook the salmon over high heat about 2-3 minutes per side, or until it is cooked to your liking.

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
