Pan Seared Salmon topped with mango habanero salsa is an easy weeknight meal. It’s the perfect summer recipe and ready in less than 30 minutes.
I have partnered with LA VICTORIA® in celebration of their 100th Anniversary to share this easy dish using their mango habanero salsa. One of my favorite simple dinners is grilling, baking or pan searing fish and topping it with salsa. It’s so flavorful and easy.
As the pioneer of jarred salsa in the U.S., the makers of the LA VICTORIA® brand is committed to continuing its tradition to deliver West Coast field fresh flavors in a wide array of versatile foods, including great-tasting salsas, taco sauces, enchilada sauces, chiles and peppers.
LA VICTORIA® Mango Habanero Salsa is packed with flavors and quite a bit of heat. I prefer my salsa to be chunky, so I like finding real chunks of mangoes, onions, tomatoes and peppers with every scoop. The sauce is sweet, savory and spicy.
To balance out the heat, I served my salmon with brown rice and steamed broccoli. You can also add fresh avocados to the salsa itself to tone down the heat if you prefer things less spicy.
As I mentioned above, LA VICTORIA® is celebrating its 100th Anniversary! I was not aware they’ve been around so long, but my family enjoys their salsas, taco sauces and enchilada sauce. I especially like that all their sauces and salsas are made in California using California tomatoes.
To commemorate such a big milestone, they are hosting several dinners including one in San Diego which I’m excited to attend.
The dinner will be at the Junipero Serra Museum with chef Christine Rivera of Galaxy Taco creating a multi-course menu that all incorporate LA VICTORIA salsas, sauces and chiles. OB-based indie rock band The Verigolds will be providing music. There will also be five San Diego artists who will showcase an original piece that represents “Modern, West Coast Lifestyle” while embodying the LA VICTORIA® brand. There is a grand prize of $7,500, while the second- and third-place winners will take home $1,500 and $1,000. I wish I could take you all to the dinner with me, but I’ll be sharing some highlights on Instagram Stories and Snapchat!
If you like salmon you might like my grilled brown sugar glazed salmon, too.
