Chili Salmon Grain Bowl with Mango Salsa

Perfect for a spicy and delicious lunch

I like to keep things as simple as possible when I’m putting together my meal prep menu for the week. This salmon dish goes together very quickly and easily. Yet, it’s packed with flavor.

For this meal, I elected to make the mango salsa myself. You can definitely use a jarred fruit salsa, if you prefer. I never seem to have good luck when it comes to picking out mangos. So I took the easier route and went with frozen mango chunks instead. Frozen fruits are processed at their peak so you know you’re getting flavorful fruit. Obviously, it’s not quite the same as fresh but this is one way to avoid issues with fruits being out of season.
