How To Make a MandaRosa Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner
The MandaRosa is a sweet, versatile citrus with the perfect ombre coloring for celebrating your love. While we love to eat it plain, the sweet, juicy flavor also lends itself to roasting.
Simply slice one in half and squeeze out the juice onto your fish before you put it in the oven. Add a couple more halved MandaRosas to the pan to bake the citrus flavor into your dinner.
Make a restaurant-quality dinner at home with tender salmon filets, fingerling potatoes, and crispy broccoli drizzled with MandaRosa juice and olive oil. Impress your special someone with an stay-at-home date night meal or treat your family to a flavorful sheet pan feast!

A Special Citrus for a Special Season
The hyper-seasonal MandaRosa is only available for about a month each year — but it’s worth the wait! This seedless citrus looks like a typical Mandarin orange from the outside but its flesh is a beautiful rosy red. Find them in your local produce section before they disappear around the beginning of March.
The MandaRosa is a natural crossbreed between a blood orange and a clementine. But it has more benefits than just deliciously sweet flavor: like the blood orange, it’s filled with anthocyanins, the most powerful antioxidants found in nature! They help reduce blood pressure to improve heart health and can help your body maintain a healthy weight and metabolism. Anthocyanins also boost your immune system, a helpful bonus in the middle of cold and flu season.
