Roasted Salmon with Arugula Mango Chimichurri

Arugula Chimichurri is a healthy, version of the classic Argentinian condiment for steak. It’s typically made with lots of oil, parsley and cilantro. I’ve lightened up the sauce and substituted peppery arugula for an easy way to increase your intake of cruciferous vegetables and added delicious mango. The result is a nutritious sauce packed with a bright sweet and tangy flavor. I used it here on salmon but it would also be great on chicken, shrimp, other fish, eggs or anything else you can think of
