Salmon in sweet, spicy Mango curry

If you love Salmon, in a spicy curry, try this fusion of sweet mango. It is sure to impress even your worst critic (Dear Husband in my case).
What you will need: Serves 4-5
6 boneless Salmon fillets
1 sweet ripe firm mango, peel the mango with a peeler, dice half and set aside. The other half, use it to grind with the mentioned ingredients
1 cup onions diced
1 cup tomatoes diced
2 tsp vegetable oil
Salt to taste
To grind:
½ mango
1 tsp coriander powder
¼ tsp turmeric
2 tsp chili powder (vary this according to your spice level)
½ tsp garam masala powder
½ tsp black pepper powder
To marinate the fish:
2 tsp vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Method:
Marinate the Salmon fillets in the mentioned ingredients. Set aside for 15 minutes. Grind all the mentioned ingredients to a fine paste.
In a wide, deep skillet, add the oil, and let it heat on medium. Once it starts to smoke, add the onions and let them cook until they are transparent. Add in the tomatoes and let them soften to a pulpy texture. Pour in the ground mango curry paste.

Let it boil on medium for about 4-6 minutes, by this time the oil will start to separate and float on the edges of the pan. Add salt to taste. Gently place the Salmon fillets into the curry, watching not to layer them on top of each other. Cover and let the curry simmer for 15 minutes on low.  Sprinkle the diced mango, serve with hot cooked rice. Enjoy!
