This is so delicious! I love salmon, and I love mangos, so it was a no-brainer.
- 1 cup mango nectar
- 1 mango, diced
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 (6-ounce) center-cut salmon fillets with skin
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter (I used smart balance spread)
In a small saucepan over high heat, bring mango nectar and mango to a boil. As mango begins to break down, press down on it with a fork or potato masher, to mash it. Continue cooking until mango cooks down to form a chunky puree, about 15 minutes. Remove half to serve as a sauce. Set the other half aside for dredging.
On a large plate, mix together flour, cornmeal, sugar and salt.
Preheat a large skillet.
Season salmon with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Brush glaze over top of salmon, then dredge in cornmeal mixture. Add oil and butter to skillet. Over high heat, sear salmon cornmeal mixture face down until golden, about 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, flipping halfway through to crisp skin.
The only thing I’d say about this one is that I got my pan too hot I think, and my salmon was a bit rare in the middle. Not bad, still very edible, but just a little pink. Husband suggests if you have this problem yourself just pop it in the oven for a few minutes.
