At the end of a long workday, my favorite kind of recipe to make is one that requires minimal attention and prep. This salmon recipe is one such example. I let a side of quinoa simmer away while this was in the oven, and if you like, you can make some salad as the salmon cooks, too. Getting dinner on the table easily is all about multitasking.

Foil-Baked Salmon with Mango, Chile, and Lime
  • 2 pound salmon fillets
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and sliced thinly
  • 1/2 jalapeño, stemmed, seeded, and sliced thinly
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • chili powder, to taste
  • juice of 1 lime
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Season the salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. Place in a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap the fish completely. Scatter the jalapeño and arrange the mango over the top, and coat with the lime juice. Season with chili powder, to taste, and coat with the olive oil. Wrap and place in the oven until opaque around the edges but slightly rare in the center, about 35-40 minutes.
