It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)! The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health.
This is a Guest Post by Eliza Valentin-Guerra, a Latina On a Mission reader.
So many people say you have to sacrifice sabor/taste when eating healthier but that’s a mentira/lie! I couldn’t eat a flat meal. I want a meal that satisfies my hunger and taste buds so why shouldn’t I have that? Why shouldn’t YOU?
Fish is always a good place to start. It’s light on the stomach, easy to make and will melt on your tongue. Yes, mujeres/ladies this is the meal to make when you want your family to say YES to anything you ask! :)
I hope you enjoy it. I’ve been having a blast sharing some of my recipes so please let me know what you think of the dish! You can leave a comment below.
Grilled Salmon in Papaya Mint Salsa
- 1 medium papaya, peeled, seeded and chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
- 1 tsp finely chopped chipotle pepper in adobe sauce
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp honey
- Salmon fillets
- In a small bowl, combine the papaya, onion, mint, chipotle pepper, oil and honey. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until ready to make.
- Grill salmon to taste and serve with salsa.
If you want to add a side dish, I think the Grilled Salmon in Papaya Mint Salsa goes great with wheat germ, brown rice or couscos.
