This was a kitchen experiment I did that came out incredibly well. The inspiration for the recipe came from a hot sauce I stumbled across in my travels, and the discovery of a wonderfully tasty and locally made fresh salsa. For those that want to recreate the recipe just as I posted it, The "Mangolian Sweet Heat" hot sauce can be found here:

  • 1 lb salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon butter (olive oil is a good, possibly healthier substitute)
  • 1 teaspoon old bay seasoning (or any similar crab or seafood seasoning will work)
  • 1/2 cup salsa, fresh, mild (you can generally find it in the refrigerated section of your grocery store)
  • 2 tablespoons mango pepper hot sauce (i used "mangolian sweet heat", but any non-vinegar based sauce will do, use your favorite!)
