Bamboo Salmon with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Ingredients
1/2
cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 1/2
pounds fresh wild salmon, cut into 1-inch chunks
1
tablespoon olive oil
 
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 
Lime wedges
 
2
large ripe mangos
2
ripe avocados, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/2-inch dice
1/2
jalapeno, seeded and minced
1/2
small red onion, diced
1
teaspoon finely grated lime zest
2
tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4
cup freshly squeezed orange juice
3
tablespoons blanco tequila
1/4
cup chopped fresh cilantro
1
tablespoon olive oil
 
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Place the lime juice in container large enough to hold 12 bamboo skewers, each 6 to 8 inches long. Let soak for 30 minutes.
  2. To make the salsa, working with 1 mango at a time, cut off the flesh from each side of the large, flat pit, to form 2 large pieces. Discard the pit. Using a knife, score the flesh lengthwise and then cross into 1/2-inch squares, cutting to, but not through, the skin. Slip the blade between the skin and the flesh and cut away the flesh, directing the small cubes into a bowl. Add the avocados, jalapeno to taste, red onion, lime zest and juice, orange juice, tequila, cilantro, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper
  3. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Thread the salmon chunks onto the skewers and brush with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill the salmon, turning every 2 minutes, until cooked but still pink inside, 5 to 7 minutes total. Alternatively, you can cook the skewers in a nonstick ridged grill pan over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes.
  4. To serve, place 2 skewers on each serving plate and scoop a large spoonful of the salsa alongside or on top. Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs and serve.
