Citrus Mojo Salmon

 

mojo salmon

I love mojo meals! And plantains.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pieces of Atlantic Salmon (or whatever you prefer)
  • 2 halfway ripe plantains-not too soft, but soft enough to peel and have a little bit of sweetness
  • 1 avocado, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup mojo marinade- I had my mom send me a few authentic bottles from Florida but here’s a **RECIPE**
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cutie (type of orange)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

Season the 2 pieces with equal parts of the garlic, mojo, 1/2 the lemon squeezed, and 1/2 the cutie squeeze…along with salt and pepper to taste. Let these marinate in their own individual block of tinfoil overnight in the fridge (you want to use the tinfoil so that when you cook the salmon the marinade is still underneath). We cooked this on the charcoal grill which is what I recommend for the best flavor but you could do it in the oven also. While the grill is heating up, make your plantains. My recipe for plantains is **HERE**. Grill the salmon in the tinfoil for about 12 minutes, depending on how rare you like it. I like mine a tiny bit rare, not all the way cooked, but you can cut into them and see if they are done to your liking. The marinade should be boiling the whole time underneath the salmon so that the salmon is essentially simmering in it. Once the salmon is done, serve with the plantains and avocado. Add some pepper to the avocado and squeeze the other 1/2s of lemon and cutie juice onto the salmon, plantains and avocado. Yum!
