Salmon Fillets with Mango – The Urban Peasant

Simply, simply, simply a delight to watch.  Basic ingredients and cooking techniques makes James very interesting and easy to follow. I love how he gives alternatives ingredients if you are out of one option. The salmon is simply placed in a glass baking dish just like the ones everyone is given for their wedding.  James’ then shows us how to cut the salmon into four pieces, in case some of us have difficulty, and then sauced before cooking in the oven at 450 degrees for roughly eight minutes.  It was very helpful when he explained how long each inch of fish should be baked so it will not be overcooked.  I was expecting the mango to be an important part of the sauce but it was actually used as a lovely garnish on top of the finished fish. James recommends serving this protein with rice and green onion.  As always, I love how conversational James is.  I could almost believe I was cooking with an old friend
