This simple mango salsa is perfect for fish or chicken.
We’ve been trying to eat more salmon these days. It’s good for you and makes a great simple, quick easy healthy dinner.
So, I’m always on the lookout for new ways to season or sauce our salmon. Recently this simple mango salsa recipe caught my eye. I decided to give it a try. It was the perfect tasty topping for grilled salmon, with its beautiful peach and green hues.
I think this simple mango salsa would be great on grilled chicken. Or grilled or roasted white fish like halibut or tilapia too.
Fish tacos, anyone?
- 1 mango, ripe but still a little firm, peeled and chopped
- ¾ cup salsa verde
- ⅓ cup chopped cilantro or parsley
- ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
- Squeeze of fresh lime juice (optional)
- Stir the ingredients together in a bowl and serve or refrigerate for several hours.
Note: You want a ripe mango for this mango salsa. A ripe mango should give a little when you press it. The trickiest part of this simple salsa recipe is peeling and chopping the mango. Cut the mango in two halves, along it's pit. Score the flesh of each half into cubes. Flip inside out and cut the cubes from the peel into a bowl. (I find this method easier than trying to peel the skin from the fruit.)
