Tequila Lime Salmon with Mango Salsa
This past Tuesday was National Tequila Day and I thought it would be fun to play with some tequila for a healthy savory meal. Most of the times you see tequila lime paired with chicken and shrimp but never fish. Well here goes the pairing with fish.
- 1 lbs. salmon or what’s local
- 2 teaspoons Savory seasoning or seasoning salt
- 2 tablespoons oil
- ½ cup tequila
- zest of 1 lime
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 shallot chopped
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter cold
- 2 mangoes diced
- 1 jalapeño minced
- ¼ bunch cilantro chopped
Season salmon evenly with savory nola and sit to the side for 5 minutes.
In a small sauce pot add tequila, lime zest, lime juice, shallot and salt. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 2-5 minutes. Reduce the liquid by half. Once reduce add in butter. Sit to the side and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
