Fish With Mango Salsa

Mango is a deceiving fruit just like some people I know. The fruit look perfect with a glossy skin when you buy. But once its cut up, the real taste is revealed - very sharp, sweet-sour or totally bland. Still its a versatile fruit for juicing, salads and a lovely addition for a spicy- salty-sour- sweet salsa, topped over the crispy fried fish. 

For The Fish (A)
1 medium size (about 400g) black pompret/bawal hitem
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
1 tsp chilli powder
1/tsp rice flour
1 tsp corn flour
Salt for taste
Oil for frying

For The Mango Salsa (B)
1 (about 180g) mango - remove skin and cubed
1 (about 150) onion - sliced
3 birds eye chillies (or red chillies) - sliced
1 inch ginger - sliced into stripes
2 stalks coriander leaves - sliced
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
Salt (if needed)
Lime wedges

Coat and rub  fish with ingredients listed in A.
Deep fry, drain and place on a serving tray.

For The Mango Salsa
Heat oil and sauté onion, chillies and ginger.
Add fish sauce, sugar and salt,
Off the heat.
Quickly stir and combine in cubed mangoes and coriander leaves.
Top over fried fish.
Serve with slices of lime.

  1. A refreshing twist from the salsa that I used to made. I used tomato instead of mango. Chopped the tomatoes, along with coriander leave and onion with lotsa Tobasco sauce and some lime juice.

  2. Sweet, sour, spicy... this sure is a winning combination

  3. I love mango salsa, and it's the perfect accompaniment for fish dishes!

  4. Fish and Mango - this is a favorite combination of mine, Nava! I've loved eating fried fish with mango salsa or pickled mango since I was a kid! We used to have a big Indian Mango tree in the Philippines and my mom used to make mango salsa as well as pickled mango. It makes simple fried dishes a lot more appetizing!

  5. Fish and mango,,,two of my favorite,looks so YummY,,

  6. yummy..yes we also do it here in our country healthy and refreshing..most specially when we eat it on a province setting..under a mango tree near a rice field or a beach picnic that food would be best..

    passing by Ms.Nava ;)

  7. looks tempting. wonder if my gf would bother learning to cook this for me haha

    My latest event recap here

  8. That looks so yummy, Nava. Don't think I could be any close to being a great cook like you. I can easily satisfy myself with just toasted bread + coffee, cereal + milk, ham and shaved chicken, fruits and nuts. Simple and easy to eat especially on the go and travelling on a budget! Have to trim on food to allocate for activities, transportation and accommodation cost here in NZ. ;P

  9. Fish and mango is a GREAT combination! I have to settle for pork or chicken, but either's delicious! Congrats on Top 9 with your previous post!

  10. thanks everyone for all the comments, sincerely appreciate each one of it.
