Total Time

Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min.


8 servings (5 cups salsa)

Salmon fillets smothered in tropical fruit salsa make an elegant main dish recipe. The cinnamon-spiced seasoning is a wonderful complement to grilled chicken, too.—Mary Jane Jones, Williamstown, WV


  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons each ground ginger, cinnamon and allspice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 salmon fillet (3 pounds)
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • SALSA:
  • 1 medium mango
  • 1 medium papaya
  • 1 medium green pepper
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh pineapple
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine the seasoning ingredients. Place fillet in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon seasoning. (Save remaining seasoning for another use.) Drizzle salmon with oil. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Peel and finely chop mango and papaya; place in a large bowl. Finely chop peppers; add to bowl. Add the remaining salsa ingredients and gently stir until blended. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Bake salmon at 350° until fish flakes easily with a fork, 25-30 minutes. Serve with salsa.
