Mango salsa...What I did on vacation?!

While Hubs was home we took a trip to Gulf Coast. Wanting to avoid the Spring breakers as much as possible, we chose an area known as "the forgotten coast" along the Florida panhandle. This area is also known for wild caught shrimp, oysters, and numerous varieties of fish. We spent the next four days walking on the beach with the dog, eating fresh seafood, and watching the sunsets. It was total relaxation! We only ate one meal at a restaurant. The rest of the time we feasted on fresh local seafood. So good! We picked up grouper one evening and I made a mango salsa to serve along with the grilled fish. We both love mango salsa with fish. (It's also tasty with chicken.) I've been making it for so long now that I don't remember where I got the original recipe. I pretty much just eyeball all the ingredients, so this is just a basic guide.
Mango salsa
serves two
One ripe mango diced
1/2 avocado diced
1/4 cup red onion chopped
1/2 jalapeno seeded and minced
juice from half a lime
1 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs chopped cilantro
Toss the first four ingredients together. Squeeze the lime juice over the mixture. drizzle the olive oil over and mix together gently. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over grilled fish or chicken.

Mango salsa is one of the best! With seafood or duck, it is to die for.
