The weather is warming up and I’m breaking into lighter menus.  I adore salsa paired with seafood, and the combination of fresh mango and papaya with lime juice and jalapeno is utterly refreshing. This recipe is easy to make, insanely delicious and super healthy. If you like, you can also try this recipe with other firm fish such as Mahi Mahi, Salmon or Red Snapper. Simply adjust the grill time according to the thickness of the fish.

If you prefer to cook indoors, you can also make this dish using a cast iron grill pan on your stove top. My husband David goes bananas over this dish. I love seeing his big smile whenever I serve this…I’m sure your family will love it too!
