Prep time: 5 minutes, cook time: 25 minutes



  • 3/4 cup fresh mango, chopped into cubes
  • 3/4 cup Spanish onion or red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pequin quebrado or minced California Red Cherry hot pepper
  • 4 (6 oz) wild Alaskan salmon fillets
  • Fine Sea salt and ground white pepper
  • Cedar plank 6x14 inches



  1. Combine the mango, red onion, cilantro, vinegar and chili in a medium bowl. Toss gently. Marinate for 15-20 minutes before serving. Makes 1.5 cups or 4 servings and tastes terrific over wild salmon or poultry.
  2. Season both sides of the salmon fillets generously with sea salt and ground white pepper. Set aside.
  3. Heat grill and set it for indirect grilling medium-high heat.
  4. Gently place seasoned fillets skin side down onto the cedar plank. (Make sure you have soaked the cedar plank in salted cool water for 2 hours then drain before using for the first time.)
  5. Place cedar plank onto the center of the grill's grate. Cover and cook fillets approximately 20 to 30 minutes or until internal temperature reads 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Generously spoon the salsa on top and around the fillets. Serve immediately straight from the cedar plank.
