Grilled Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa over Coconut Rice

Today I have a super quick, easy and tasty meal for you, a grilled salmon with mango avocado salsa .  It pairs perfectly with my creamy coconut rice.  If you haven’t had coconut rice yet you need to make it today! It is one of my favorite rice dishes and it’s so easy to prepare.

The salmon is grilled until the skin and outside is nice and crispy and the inside remains nice and moist and tender.

The mango avocado salsa goes amazingly well with the Cajun  seasoning of the salmon. It is fresh, a bit tart, a bit sweet…just perfect!
