Mango-Onion Relish

I don’t know about everyone else but I have definitely been trying to eat much lighter lately (still trying to shed the holiday pounds). So when I came across this recipe for Mango-Onion Relish I instantly thought how yummy this would be on a nice fillet of fish. My family loves fish! The fish with the Mango-Onion Relish was light, fresh, slightly sweet but with the onion and lime juice still very savory. I really enjoyed this! This is another good recipe out of the cookbook How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman.The ingredients are:

  • 2 Mangoes
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2 Tablespoons minced cilantro leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. Peel and pit the mangoes. Chop their flesh and combine it with the onion, lime juice, and cilantro; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Serve immediately or refrigerate for a day or two and serve at room temperature.

This Mango Relish can also be served on chicken. I was also thinking if you added a little fresh minced jalapeno then you would have a yummy Mango Salsa. I haven’t tried that yet but it was just a thought.

  2. This looks great! My kids love mango and I bet they’d go for a mango topping on fish. I know I would! I also like how summery mangoes seem in wintertime–so much for seasonal eating! :)
