Delicate salmon is topped with a wonderful combination of mango and Brie cheese. The best part is that the Brie bakes with the salmon. Wonderful with a spinach salad and fresh bread.

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!! Read More

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. Read More

This was fantastic I LOVE the combo of brie and salmon. I enjoyed even more the second time when I used an asian pear and a fuji apple instead of the mango then cooked them in a little bit of maple syrup. Made a nice crunchy contrast to the smooth brie and salmon. Read More

This recipe is fantastic! The only problem that I ran into is that the brie melted almost completely off the salmon but I just layered more brie on before ladling the mago sauce on. For the mango topping the mangos I started with were a bit unripe so I took another reviewers advice and blended them in the blender first. I think this greatly facillitated with making it smooth for the unblended chunks never got smooth on their own. I also added some lemon juice some brown sugar and a pinch of cayenne pepper. It was great over the rice I served on the side. Be prepared to make extras but don't expect any leftovers everything was scraped clean! This is one of my favourite recipes and the only reason it isn't getting 5 stars is because of how much I changed it. Have fun with it! Read More

This was very good! We made the salmon on the grill on a cedar board. At the very end laid the brie on top to melt-- which only took a couple of minutes-- the cedar board added a great smokey flavor to it all. As for the sauce on other reviewers suggestion I added a pinch of cayanne pepper. I used jarred mangoes and added a tiny bit of the juice from the jar as well so that they could cook up better. They didnt get completely smooth which could be remedied by putting in blender however we liked the sauce just fine with the small chunks of mango. Read More

This was sooooooooo delicious! My husband was very skeptical about the mangos but that was really what made the whole dish come together. I didn't have Brie cheese so I used Munster instead but next time I would like to try the Brie. Another review mentioned that if the mango is not ripe enough you just get caramelized mangos which I ended up with but it was still very tasty. Very easy to make and not much time and clean up.

I'm not sure how I feel about this recipe. The mango mix was delicious and I love brie cheese. I followed previous suggestions to add some punch to the salmon with salt and pepper. It definitely would have been bland without it in my opinion. In retrospect the idea of cheese even something like brie just seems weird for fish. Read More

This recipe was delicious! So flavorful and easy. The only thing I would suggest would be to add a dab more brie on each piece of salmon a couple of minutes before it's done baking. Read More
