ohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh this is the best. the best-best. my sister shared it with the whole family after my other sister made it for her for her birthday. her email called it "favorite salmon with mango chutney", but I thought I'd get a little more specific for you so you have some idea of what you're eating, and since I didn't take a picture of it. I think this is adapted from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. but don't quote me on that.
I don't love meat (like you don't know that by now), but I love seafood. so much so that if I could afford seafood as often as I dreamt about seafood they would probably draw mercury from my veins to use in thermometers.
because I don't buy seafood as often as I dream of it, and because my husband's family doesn't share my affinity for maritime meats, we've also tried this rub slathered on chicken and I like it almost as much.
and, to top it off, its one of the easiest (and fastest!) dinner preps ever. I think its probably because each ingredient for the rub is stuff I already have in my kitchen (and when I say MY kitchen, of course, I mean my mother-in-laws....). if you've got cilantro, fresh ginger, and some ripe mangos, you've got yourself an easy meal that will knock everyone's socks off. speaking of which, this would be such a great Valentine's dinner! seafood is a special occasion around here, and its guaranteed to impress. in fact, I think I'll make it again for the occasion, and then I'll update this post with salmon pictures too.
