I originally posted this recipe last summer, but sharing it again this week as a part of the weekly menu! This grilled salmon recipe is one of our favorites, and one that Derek always request! Enjoy!!
Did you all have a lovely long and relaxing weekend? Derek and I had a very active an jam paced weekend, but a fun one! We spent the weekend soaking up the beautiful weather, catching up with friends and family, and hiking for hours in Taylor Falls, I will share some of the pictures with you later this week! We really couldn't have asked for better weather this weekend, and I think it is safe to say that Summer might finally be here!
Speaking of Summer weather finally coming to Minnesota, one of my favorite things about warm Summer weather has to be grilling out! I love spending time outside with family and friends, grilling up a delicious home cooked meal! Derek and I whipped up this delicious Grilled Salmon with Orange Mango Salsa to end our wonderful long weekend! Derek and I both agreed that this salmon was delicious and agreed that the addition of the orange juice in the mango salsa provided a nice well rounded flavor! The salsa is not overly spicy considering there is a whole jalapeno in it, but if your not a huge spice person feel free to omit the jalapeno and add in a little sweet red pepper. Serve this flavorful salmon with a simple side salad for a balanced meal! I will be sharing the salad with enjoyed with this salmon later this week on the blog!
