Salsa and Petersons 001 editA few years ago, my brother went on a deep-sea fishing excursion and came back with the most beautiful tuna. There are so many things you can do with fish like that, but we opted for grilling it and serving it with a mango salsa. Here’s how I make mine:

  • Prep time: 15 minutes 
  • Servings: six to eight, depending on size


  • 1 mango
  • 1 avocado
  • 1-2 nectarines
  • 1/2 of a pineapple
  • 1/2 of a red onion
  • juice of 1 lime
  • bunch of cilantro (I just grabbed a handful from our herb garden)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Cut up all your fruit, chop the onion in small pieces, and dice the avocado.
  2. Put everything in a bowl and squeeze lime on it. Give it a good stir and add salt, pepper, and cayenne. Stir again to incorporate seasoning.
  3. Serve with fish, or maybe to compliment some sweet potato chips. Whatever you do with it, it’ll be delicious!
