Mealthy Tip

If you’re using skinless salmon, continue using the same steps. Make sure your pan is always hot and steaming before adding oil, and allow the oil to heat up before adding the salmon. Be careful not to over-crowd the pan, as it lowers the temperature of the skillet. For best results, cook salmon in batches of 2 to 3 servings.

Very delicious salmon dish with a kick of heat from the cayenne and adobo sauce. The salsa is a refreshing compliment to salmon which does cut down on the spice. Make sure to get that salmon skin very crispy as you will find it more palatable.

I've never had chipotle flavored salmon before, and I've been seriously missing out. This recipe was fantastic! I love spicy foods, so the cayenne and adobo was perfect. I wonder how the salmon would taste in a taco? So good, I an't wait to make this again.

The chipotle and lime flavors were really bold, but paired well with the salmon. The salmon would probably also be really good to use in tacos. I'll probably try that next! I'm not a huge fan of oranges, but the citrus avocado salsa was a pleasant surprise. A lot of flavor in this dish, I look forward to making it again.

Using two chipotle peppers was too much for me, it was really spicy. I think one tablespoon will suffice next time. My husband, on the other hand, thought the heat was perfect. We both loved it and will make again.
