My daughter calls this recipe Fabulicious. I think shes right. Its a perfect fish for Shabbat or the 'Nine Days", it serves well either hot or cold and really satisfies.


Salmon fillet 1 , skinned
Sea salt To Taste
Granulated garlic To Taste
Grated fresh ginger To Taste
Coconut oil 2 Tablespoon
Ripe mangoes 2 , cubed
Orange 1 , juice extracted
Limes 2 , juice extracted
Lemons 2 , juice extracted
Roma tomatoes 4 , dice
Onion 1 Medium , dice
Pure maple syrup 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)



1. Heat a sauté pan on medium high heat. Add the coconut oil.

2. Meanwhile take your salmon fillet and dust both side nicely with sea salt and granulated garlic, then cut into serving sized portions.

3. When the oil is hot. Sear the fillets.

4. Make sure you allow a nice crust to form on both sides. You do NOT want to cook the fish all the way through right now, just sear both sides with a firm crust. Once done, set the fillets aside.

5. Now, lower your heat to medium to medium low. Add the onions and let them get soft, and then add the tomatoes and sauté for about 3 minutes.

6. Now add the salmon filets back in to the pan. Grate the fresh ginger to taste right on top of the filets.

7. Add the 3 juices (Orange, Lime and Lemon) and put a lid on the pan so that the fish can take luxuriate in the juices for about 5 minutes. Keep the heat low.

8. Assuming the fish is done to your desired taste, take the filets out with most of the juices, the onions and the tomatoes and put in a serving dish.

9. Now, add the mango to the pan and let it soften for about 3 minutes or so. Then, turn the heat up on the pan to medium high and add the maple syrup.

10. Work quickly to caramelize the syrup into the mango and then pour on top of the filets. Make sure you get every bit of mango and all the syrup.


11. Serve with a bed of quinoa or rice and enjoy!
