Salmon with a Mango & Blueberry Salsa
I love mangoes and blueberries. In fact every morning for breakfast I have a bowl of Oatmeal loaded with mangoes, blueberries and cinnamon. It gives me a jump start for my day.
So when I was having breakfast the other day I wondered what these fruits would taste like in a salsa. Since I was preparing Salmon that evening I decided to to try it, I mean how bad could it be? It actually tasted great and very refreshing.
In addition to the way it tasted did you know that Mangoes are:
High in antioxidants
High in iron
High in vitamins A, E and Selenium which protects against heart disease
Blueberries also have some health benefits that include:
They help to slow the aging process.
They help reduce cell damage that may lead to some forms of cancer.
They help prevent and even cure urinary tract infections.
They help clean our blood vessels, our arteries and veins.
They are proving to be beneficial to those suffering with arthritis and fibroses myalgia.
They benefit the nervous system and may help to prevent mood swings.
They help you maintain good vision.
They are good for your complextion.
Help you stick to that “diet” and aid in weight control
Plus of course Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids which help to ward off diseases.
With benefits like that I’m glad I’ve been eating them on a regular basis.
Below is the recipe for Mango & Blueberry Salsa
1/3 cup blueberries
1/3 cup peeled, diced mangoes
2 tablespoons minced red onions
2 tablespoon minced red bell peppers
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon minced jalepeno peppers, seeded
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Combine blueberries, mangoes, onions, bell peppers, cilantro, lime juice, jalepenos, honey, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside or cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use (Best if used that day to avoid blueberries discoloring mangoes. Otherwise can hold up to 3 days)
Note: Be sure to wash hands carefully after handling chili peppers and be careful not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth prior to washing hands.
