Tropical salsas can take a fish dinner from good to great! I adore tropical fruits and especially like them paired with fresh fish of the season.
This mango salsa recipe is simple, fresh and makes dinner a breeze. Just top your fresh grilled, or even pan seared or baked fish, or chicken with this mango salsa and serve with an herbed rice, grilled sweet potatoes or grilled plantains and you have a fabulous and fast dinner.
This delicious salsa can even be served as an appetizier with blue corn chips! In fact, I usually prepare enough salsa to top our fish or chicken and then serve a little extra with chips for snacking before dinner is ready. You can prepare this recipe up to one day in advance, however, do not combine the avocado until you are ready to serve. Happy Cooking!
