 Jerk Salmon With Honey Mango Salsa

 Cast iron skillet recommended:

If you aren’t a fan of the cast iron skillet or don’t have one, you can cook your salmon in a regular frying pan or bake it. Using whatever cooking method you are familiar with to cook salmon. If you are using the cast iron skillet, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Then heat the pan on the stove top over high heat for about 1 minute. Add a little bit of oil to the pan. Place the salmon into the pan (bottom or skin side up), and sear for 1 minute. Carefully flip the salmon over onto its bottom/skin side, then place the cast iron skillet into the oven and roast for 8 to 10 minutes.
