Recipe Review: Grilled Salmon with Mango Salsa

The one thing that I have always loved doing is testing recipes by other food bloggers by making it exactly as written and then making it into my own. I wanted to start this series with one of my favorite meals from the summer, ‘Grilled Salmon with Mango Salsa’ by Creme de la Crumb.


The first time I made this dish, I was blown away by the flavors. You would think that because of the few ingredients that it would also lack in flavor, but nuh uh! This meal is full of mmmm moments with every single bite. Each time I would take a taste, a new flavor would hit my tongue. As I stated earlier, the first time I made this recipe, I followed the instructions line by line. Typically, I will find quite a few things that I would want to change. With this meal there was only ONE thing that I wanted to adjust.

My biggest pet peeve with any recipe is not seasoning every layer of what you are cooking. It’s like bloggers who say to add salt at the end of the meal as if that is going to fully add flavor to the dish. NOPE. Nowhere in this recipe does it say to add salt to the salsa. While some people may want it to be full on sweet, I think it needed a pinch of salt to bring all of the flavors together. I promise you, that pinch of salt was HEAVEN. It completed the dish and even made me cook it twice in one week. Just for fun, I added some tomatoes this go round to see how it would affect the flavor. It was good, just not as good as it was before. So, while tomatoes may be the move for you guys, I’m going to pass for now.

If you’re looking for a recipe that is light yet flavorful, this is the one. I’m super happy that I chose to use this recipe as my first review because it was worth every moment of preparation. Thank you to Tiffany over at Creme de la Crumb for creating this amazing recipe and sharing it with the world!
