Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

Tropical fruit lends a summery taste to Mary Beth Harris-Murphee's easy salmon main course. “Make the salsa the night before and serve it with cellophane noodles or jasmine rice for a fast and delicious meal,” she writes from Tyler, Texas.


  • 4 salmon fillets (5 ounces each)
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup mandarin oranges
  • 1/2 cup chopped peeled kiwifruit
  • 1/2 cup chopped peeled mango
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno pepper


  1. Place salmon in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Combine the brown sugar, mustard, salt, cayenne and ginger; sprinkle over salmon. Top with butter.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20-23 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the salsa ingredients. Serve with salmon.
