About this recipe: Salmon fillets are pan-seared, topped with Brie and then baked to perfection. The baked salmon is then served with a chunky mango sauce. Serve with potatoes or rice.
I rubbed the salmon fillets with ground pepper, paprika and 4-5 cloves of finely minced garlic, just like an earlier review recommended. The taste of garlicy brie cheese was heavenly!! I also substituted a ripe pear for one mango (as I only had one) and it turned out great! I added a pinch of salt and about 1/2 tsp of sugar to the mango/pear mixture as it cooked to enhance the flavours of the fruit. Next time, I would make DOUBLE the amount of mango sauce as it is a terrific topper for basmati rice - maybe it would be even better with a splash of coconut milk? I may also add some finely minced fresh cilantro to the mango mixture the next time I try this. For those of you who are concerned about the amount of fat in the brie cheese, use some light mozzarella cheese instead. This was so refreshing!! - 05 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I wanted this to be so delicious. It's 3 of my favorite things in the world, all together in one dish! In reality, it was just OK. The flavors didn't work as well together as I would have thought. The brie gets a little lost. I'd make it again, but I'll have to play around with the ingredients, maybe a less flavorful fish or a stronger-tasting cheese. One warning - make sure your mangos are very ripe, or you won't have a sauce, you'll have caramelized mango chunks. Mine were way to underripe to turn into a sauce. We still enjoyed them as a "warm mango salsa" sort of thing, but if you're looking for an actual sauce, start with mushy mangos. - 24 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Recommend the following changes: *add garlic to pan before adding mangoes *mix in 1 tbsp of brown sugar with the mangoes *season the salmon with ground pepper and kosher salt - 20 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
