Mexican ancho chillies are known for their smoky, slightly sweet almost dried fruit flavour rather than their heat. While used in plenty of classic Mexican dishes such as Chile con carne, salsas and sauces for enchiladas and more, we’ve chosen to make an ancho chile based marinade for salmon to go with our style of spicy rice along which is all topped with a spicy, colourful and summery mango and pineapple salsa.

Ancho Glazed Salmon Reviews

BASED ON reviews

Nigel - Jan 04, 2020

I really can't decide on this one The salsa was great, I didn't think it would work when making it but it was really good and the best part of the meal. the salmon was OK, but not much flavour, which could have been down to the size of the salmon fillets we used, so would try it again. The rice was really bland, I followed the instructions to the letter but found I had to keep adding more and more water as the rice just didn't seem to cook with the specified amount of water, and was really hard, hence adding more water. Next time I might try a little less rice and see if that helps

Fish tasted brilliant - not sure about the fruity salad thpough - fruit and salty/spicy chilli/pepper don't really go together

Diane - Dec 07, 2019

Not as nice as other dishes from SimplyCook. Salad was gorgeous but overall dish needed something...we still ate every bit though.

Extremely disappointing. Normally love Mexican food, love salmon, but flavours did not work together. Waste of money buying the mango and pineapple, didn't get the taste of them at all.
