 ¼ cup fresh mango, diced (or use canned)

 2 fresh strawberries, diced
 1 kiwi, peeled and diced

Salmon and fruit

2

Season the salmon with cracked pepper and a dusting of Splenda. Place the fish in a hot non-stick oven-ready pan, which has been lightly coated with canola oil. The oil will shimmer when the pan is at the correct heat. Cook the salmon on medium heat, Splenda side down, for about 4-5 minutes until golden color.

Salmon Filets

3

Flip the salmon over and place in a preheated 375-degree oven. Roast the salmon for about 10-12 minutes. The cooked fish will be firm to the touch and the internal temperature will be about 150 -160 degrees. Remove from the oven and let the fish rest for 2-3 minutes. Place the fish on the plate. Top with fruit salsa.
