Looks like today is Mango love day, I just shared a mango smoothie and this mango-habanero sauce was pending to share with you since long. I think, our love for mangoes show pretty much in my blog. We adore mangoes and I keep looking for creative ways to included'em in my recipes.

Pan-Seared Salmon with Mango Habanero Hot Sauce
Even though, the star of today'e recipe is Salmon. (Don't you think, this pan-seared piece is looking gorgeous??), mango-habanero sauce will make your day. Even the name sounds hot and sweet at the same time and that's what this Hot Sauce is all about - perfect balance of Hot and Sweet.

For best results, I recommend using Mango Puree instead of fresh mangoes. But, if you only have fresh mangoes, make sure they are ripe, sweet and add 1-2 tbsp of honey on the sauce (start with 1 tbsp then adjust per taste).

Pan-Seared Salmon with Mango Habanero Hot Sauce
Mango Habanero hot sauce goes great with grilled pork chops or pan-seared shrimp too.

Recipe makes about 1/2 cup, so save that and try it with other proteins to make it your own. Happy Cooking!!
