Some meals just call for salsa and a meal made with fish calls for mango salsa. Luckily, mangoes are easy to come by here in Quito as are the rest of the ingredients you need to make this simple dish. And remember, if you need an easy method to dice a mango, check out the instructions from Quinoa Salad with Mangoes and Curry Dressing.
2 ripe mangoes, diced
1/2 half red onion, finely diced
1 red pepper, finely diced
1-2 hot peppers, minced
2-4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 to 1/2 cup cilantro, minced
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
juice of one lemon or one lime
salt to taste
Take all of these ingredients and mix them together in a bowl. Let the salsa sit for 20 minutes or so while you prepare the rest of your meal. Best eaten the same day but is pretty good the second day. We’ve never had any last longer than that! Great with fish tacos or just with tortilla chips.
