I have been wanting to make this amazing chimichurri salmon for the longest time.
The recipe is from an old Martha Stewart’s magazine that I had been keeping it for years.
Finally, I got to try it out and it’s one of the best tasting salmon recipes ever!
Chimichurri sauce is a South American creation. It’s usually made with cilantro, parsley, garlic and olive oil. There are many variations but this mango chimichurri sauce is absolutely delightful.
The fresh, sweet and tangy mango shines in this chimichurri salmon recipe and lends gorgeous color, fruity taste to an already delicious recipe.
This dish is utterly simple and straight forward to make at home. It’s also versatile as you can spoon the mango chimichurri sauce over chicken or shrimp.
Just look at the pictures above, this homemade chimichurri salmon looks and tastes like it’s straight from restaurants. Bon appetit!
