3/4 pound salmon filet

1 – 2 tsp coconut oil. I used the virgin oil with coconut flavor

1/2 Manila mango, sliced

1/2 small lemon

1/2 tsp butter

Directions:

Melt 1 tsp coconut oil over medium heat in heavy frying pan. I use my cast iron skillet.

Put salmon fillet in, skin side down. Add mango slices. Cover skillet for about 3-4 minutes until the skin is well cooked.

Add another tsp of coconut oil to the pan and flip the mango slices over. Cover pan and let cook for another 3-4 minutes until the salmon is starting to cook through. Flip the salmon over and spread a bit more butter on top and squeeze some more lemon on it and the mango slices.

Cut salmon into portions and serve with mango slices on top.
