I adore food. And I am always thrilled to try old favorites in new ways. And one of the latest treasures from the sea that I discovered? Was in the Sam’s Club seafood section.
After visiting Alaska, I don’t often find salmon dishes that I’d be eager to revisit. That is until I tried the C. Wirthy & Co. Blackened Salmon. People…never have I been so eager to defrost an entire bag of salmon. And being able to pick up all my additional fruit salsa ingredients in one Sam’s Club trip? Bonus!
Easily located in the Sam’s Club frozen food aisle, I love discovering the different high-quality and sustainable seafood choices available. And just adjacent, I found the strawberries, blueberries, and mango spears I needed for the fruit salsa. Meaning this was a meal that the kids would be eager to try out as well. Meaning I’m one happy Momma!
I started this meal by defrosting the blackened salmon in water 30 minutes before baking it. You can see right away how this air-tight packaging has sealed the seasoned salmon. And I was very pleased that it even smelled fresh upon opening. Beyond that, the perfectly seasoned fillets even smelled fresh and inviting!
Once opened, I laid the fish out on a parchment paper. On this I sprinkled salt and pepper. Then placed the fish, drizzling lemon juice over the fillets. In a pre-heated oven, it will only have to cook for 15-20 minutes.
Then I began gathering up the fresh fruit and veggies I’d be needing to plate our dish. Personally, I love the Fresh Fruit pre-sliced options available as well. It makes dicing up the different fruits so much easier. Plus, there isn’t any more worries on how to properly clean that mango.
Afterwards, I added a red spring onion and lemon juice. Then lightly tossed the whole bowl together. This fresh fruit salsa is good enough to eat on its own! I couldn’t wait to see how well it paired with the salmon.
As the timer on the C. Wirthy & Co. Blackened Salmon wound down, I began to saute organic rainbow chard. I thought its mild nutty taste would be interesting to taste with the salmon’s paprika seasoning. Just tossed in the pan with a little olive oil, it would wither up nicely before being plated.
And there you have it. The C. Wirthy & Co. Blackened Salmon and Fresh Fruit Salsa using fresh mangoes and berries. Personally, I love how simple, easy, and delicious this meal is to whip up for the family! I also envision this salmon would be good on a salad with hard boiled eggs.
