I’m really excited to share this recipe with you because nothing says summer like this tropical salsa. You can use it over chicken or fish, but I prefer it on a really good quality white fish like Halibut, Mahi Mahi, Opah or Sword Fish. If you are looking for a special dish to prepare for company, give this is a try and I promise they’ll be wowed!
1/2 cup diced mango
1/2 cup diced pineapple – golden if possible
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup diced cucumber
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 clove of garlic chopped fine
Juice of 2 limes
Optional if you like heat – 1 jalapeno, seeds and stem removed and chopped
Handful of chopped cilantro, about 1/2 cup. Save a little to sprinkle on top when plating up.
2-4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tsp cracked pepper
1 tsp sea salt
Chop and prepare all ingredients and place in a bowl. Mix and refrigerate for 1 -2 hours before serving so flavors can incorporate.
Grill fish of choice and plate up with a couple spoonfuls of tropical salsa.
Another wow factor is to make coconut jasmine rice. Find jasmine rice that’s brown if possible. Cook according to package and add 1 can of light coconut milk and steam for another 20-30 minutes. Add some fresh ginger or ginger powder.
When plating, take 1/2 cup of jasmine rice in the center of plate, place fish on top and then tropical salsa with some additional cilantro! Wowieee!!! Enjoy!
