Mango Cilantro Avocado Salsa over Grilled Halibut

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!

Mango Cilantro Salsa

Serves 4

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: No cooking required

2 large mangos peeled and diced

1-2 large avocados diced

½ C purple/red onion diced

¼ C (or a good handful) packed chopped cilantro

1 Serrano or jalapeño pepper seeded and diced (optional) or a pinch of chipotle powder

1 Lime zested and juiced

1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


Fresh cracked black pepper

Gently toss mangos, onion, pepper, cilantro, lime zest and lime juice.  Next add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and gently toss again.  Last, add the avocado and gently toss into the salsa.  Serve with blue corn chips as an appetizer or over grilled fresh Halibut or grilled Chicken for a main course.  Add a few yummy sides to make a great summer meal.

    I made this last week, Karista, and I’ve already bought more ingredients to make it again this week. Delicious!!!

    • Michelle! So glad you like this salsa! It’s so yummy I could eat it with a spoon! Just tested a Papaya salsa that I’ll blog soon and have a few really fun and delicious savory fruit sauces (Strawberry Sauce and a Mango Sauce) for the spring and summer months to use over grilled fish and chicken. They will be super easy and super yummy! Thanks for leaving me comments! This really is great feedback and helps me with future recipes to blog. Happy Cooking!
