    Great fresh and healthy recipe. I mixed it up a bit and it was super yummy. I added a whole chopped jalepaeno to give it a kick (warning, it had a kick, but really complemented the mango), used fresh chopped red pepper instead of the flakes for more taste and texture, and did not add the beans (it didnt need it). I also replaced the oil with fresh lemon juice to keep the fish light and healthy, it worked well. Finally, instead of tortillas, I served the whole fish fillets on a plate with huge piles of salsa on top and with a side of grilled veggies (use the rest of the red pepper and add some yellow pepper and onion or your grilled veggie of choice). Delicious and Healthy.  -  16 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Hey now! This is so easy and fast. I did do this on the grill and it was GREAT. Quick - light and oh so perfect for summer. I took some liberty with the salsa - based on what I had on hand. mango, pineapple, lime, cliantro, red onion, green onion and a finely diced serrano pepper - OH JOY - one beautiful - fast and elegant meal. Thank you. **** I did use Smoked Paprika, a little garlic and onion powder on the fish.

    This was amazing! I cut back on the cucumber, added half a serrano pepper, lots of garlic and cilantro because I didn't have any basil on hand, & neither did the store ;\. I wrapped everything up in heated corn tortillas, topped with finely shredded cabbage & a big squeeze of lime. TO DIE FOR!  -  23 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
