I'm planning on salmon for dinner tonight, marinated and then either grilled or broiled (depending on the weather). Normally I like to marinate the salmon in an orange marmalade based marinade. I thought I'd try it with a mango marinade this time. The marmalade was so good on its own that I thought I'd offer it. Serve on toast, biscuits, muffins or scones. —inpatskitchen
What You'll Need
navel orange, thinly sliced, peel and all , the slices then quartered
of a large lemon, thinly sliced, peel and all, the slices then quartered
diced red mangoes (small dice) - I used 3 mangoes
In a medium sauce pan combine the orange slices, lemon slices and water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes.
Add the diced mango, sugar and salt, bring back up to a simmer and then continue to simmer for about 20 more minutes.
Using a potato masher or similar item, mash the mixture until it's thick and a little chunky. Cool, refrigerate and enjoy!
I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
