Delicious Decisions: Grilled Salmon with Mango-Lime Cream Sauce

  • Serves: 4; 3 ounces fish and 2 tablespoons sauce per serving
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cooking Time: 7- 8 minutes


This refreshing yet rich-tasting sauce adds an unusual flavor kick to simple grilled salmon.


Cooking spray
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper (white preferred)
4    salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each), rinsed and patted dry

1/3 cup coarsely chopped bottled mango, 1 tablespoon juice reserved
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
1    teaspoon fresh lime juice

Cooking Instructions

Lightly spray the grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill on medium high.

Sprinkle the salt and pepper over one side of the salmon. Using your fingertips, gently press so they adhere to the fish.

Grill with the seasoned side down for 5 minutes. Turn over. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes, or to the desired doneness.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together all the sauce ingredients. Serve at room temperature or cover and refrigerate until serving time. Spoon over the fish.

Cook's Tip

On Mangoes: Check the refrigerated area of the produce section for sliced mangoes in jars. They save on time and are less messy.
