Fish with Mango Salsa #recipe from author @DarylWoodGerber

From Daryl:

I've been on a fish kick lately. I buy the frozen packets at Costco and dress them up. Last week I shared a lime sauce recipe that is perfect for white fish. And it might be good for chicken.

This week, I'm sharing another fish topping that is most definitely great on chicken.

I went to the local fruit and veggies market. It's such a great place. Family owned. Packed with goodies.  I particularly love their strawberries.They had everything I needed to make this a really delicious and simple addition to a summer barbecue dinner.


Mango Salsa

For each piece of fish (or chicken), figure approximately 2 tablespoons of each item per portion of salsa.

Mango, chopped
Strawberries, diced
Avocado, diced
1 teaspoon balsamic vinaigrette dressing
(*I use Paul Newman's creamy vinaigrette.)

In a small bowl, mix the mango, strawberries, avocado, and dressing.  Serve in large portions on each piece of fish…or chicken…or salad.  This is simply delicious.

Don't like mango? Use papaya.

Don't like strawberries or avocado? Use melon.

It's super easy to swap this out.

I broiled my fish. You can barbecue, bake, or pan fry. 

I must admit vinaigrette dressing makes the avocados look, um, brown. If you like, use a lighter "colored" dressing. Maybe use white vinegar or rice vinegar?


My new book DESOLATE SHORES, the first Aspen Adams Novel of Suspense, 
comes out August 13. Have you pre-ordered?

A chilling murder, an elusive killer, and a family mystery that hits too close to home . . .

After finding the body of her best friend on the icy shores of Lake Tahoe, Aspen Adams refuses to stand by and watch as the local sheriff’s department begins their search for the killer. Launching her own investigation, she’s soon confronted with a growing array of secrets—both about the friend she thought she knew and about many of the people in her own life. As fragmentary clues and escalating dangers threaten to derail her, she must also cope with the disturbing behavior of her deadbeat sister and troubled teenage niece.

Determined to overcome her personal demons over past failures, Aspen is driven to unravel the conflicting evidence and a shifting range of suspects to bring the killer to justice, even as a family trauma unfolds that threatens to upend her life. And as her investigation inexorably leads her to a shocking discovery and taunts her with a solution that is just out of reach, Aspen realizes that the killer wants nothing more than to see her and her niece dead . . .

Preorder HERE, trade paperback and e-book, coming August 13th.
