4 servings (serving size: 1 salmon fillet and 1/4 cup relish)

Marinate salmon fillets in a homemade mixture of honey, soy sauce, and olive oil, cook in a grill pan or skillet, and serve with a homemade fruit relish for an easy salmon entree with a tropical twist.   Pair with mixed greens and steamed couscous for a complete meal. 

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare salmon, combine first 4 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add fish to bag; seal. Marinate 10 minutes, turning occasionally.

Step 2

While fish marinates, heat grill pan or large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove fish from bag, discarding marinade. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fish, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Step 3

While fish cooks, prepare the relish. Combine mango and the remaining ingredients. Serve over fish.

Ratings & Reviews

Where's the flavor?

February 07, 2017
I'm giving this 3 stars only because the relish was 4 and the salmon was 2. None of the marinade's flavor came through and only succeeded in oversearing the fish and leaving charred residue behind. This would have been much better if I had simply seasoned and grilled the salmon (lovely wild-caught sockeye fillets) and served it with the relish. I also agree with another reviewer that lime juice would have been tasty (tastier?) in the relish. Perhaps half and half. I did double the relish recipe as it's good as is or with yogurt. I served this with jasmine rice and steamed haricots. Sad when the star of the meal is all the side dishes. Keeping the recipe just for the relish.

Family favorite

Have made this many times and it is always a hit.  We prefer to grill the salmon on our Traeger.  The smokiness of the grill really adds some nice flavor.  If one wanted spice it up, some diced jalapeno in the relish would be good.  So would some minced red onion.

Not a hit

Without the relish, this is VERY bland. I even added cayenne pepper to my marinade.  My 13 year old son was adding cracked black pepper and 3 of my younger children were adding teriyaki glaze.  Thought it would be a be livelier...especially with a hit of cayenne.  The relish is good. However, will not be making this one again.  

Salmon still cold

I cooked the salmon in a frying pan for 10 minutes, and when I checked it, the middle was still cold! What am I doing wrong?!

The sweetness of the relish with the savory fish is a great mix. Will make again.

This was fine so I would rate it as "good," but we weren't crazy about it, and I'd rather make other salmon dishes like the CL bourbon salmon, the orange marmalade salmon, or the one marinated with pineapple juice. The salmon was nice and moist, but I didn't pick up much flavor beyond its own, and the fruit relish--despite my adding a half a jalapeno--seemed more like a fruit salad than a relish. I would recommend lime juice in the fruit relish--which I didn't use--and lime juice over the fish--which I did. Served with couscous and steamed swiss chard.
