    Loved it! I used the leftover cilantro in the rice, there is an Everyday Food recipie for Cilantro rice that goes very nicely with this dish.

    Great, healthy recipe. The mango salsa was delicious, and there is a lot left over, so I'm going to have to figure out how to reuse it tomorrow night. Didn't have time to clean the broiler, so we baked the salmon in the oven instead. I served this dish with plain white rice, which went nicely.
