Baked Salmon with Turmeric Mango Salsa
From the Skinny Chef: Mango mixes with the astringent flavor of turmeric for a savory sweet and sour salsa. It’s the ideal topping for the rich taste of salmon and mango adds plenty of vitamin C along with the amazing healing properties of turmeric.

1/2 cup diced red onion (about 1/2 a large onion)
1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeno
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon salt
