Reviews for Chipotle Salmon with Strawberry Mango Salsa
"Really enjoyed this recipe!"
"This is such a simple but flavorful recipe! It takes hardly and time to prepare, so it is great when you are short on groceries but want a great meal. I think it would also be good with any type of fruity salsa!"
"A keeper...my husband couldn't get done raving about this dish. I don't usually like hot spicy foods. This was not too spicy, as I made sure to remove all seeds from the chipotle peppers before dicing them."
"This was pretty good. I didn't have chipotle peppers in adobo sauce so I used adobo sauce. Omitted the salt. I don't care for cilantro or mint. Used parsley. The next time I make this, I won't bother with the oil."
"I couldn't find the chipotle peppers at Whole Foods, so I substituted some fabulous spicy Hawaiian seasoning (and omitted the salt since the seasoning has salt), and the salmon came out great. The salsa was also delicious.. I had quite a bit of salsa left along with a small piece of salmon, I tossed it with some lettuce to make a healthy, refreshing salad the next day!"
