Sweet-Tart Salmon and Fruit Salsa

I got this recipe from my good friend and fellow blogger, Elizabeth Swartzberg (you may know her as Lizzy Cook). Her joint cooking blog is so cute, check it out:  Anyway, this recipe is super easy and yummy. The salmon is moist and almost "buttery" (if that is even a word). The salsa is also delish.

Sweet-Tart Salmon and Fruit Salsa

Salmon (however much you like)
Honey or brown sugar
Lime/lemon juice
Salt and pepper
1 mango, chopped
2 cups pineapple, chopped (fresh, frozen, or canned)
2 cups black beans (1-15 oz can is fine)
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon lime/lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey or brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
3 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (if using dried, use 1 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 heaping teaspoon cumin
A few dashes of salt
*Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Drizzle a baking dish with olive oil. Place the salmon in the baking dish. (You can either remove the skin or leave it on--I prefer no skin.) Sprinkle the salmon with brown sugar or honey. Drizzle some lemon or lime juice on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Meanwhile, add the remaining ingredients into a medium-sized bowl for the fruit salsa. Refrigerate salsa until the salmon is done cooking. Top the salmon with the salsa. Enjoy :)
