I was very disappointed in the salsa, which surprises me because the other reviews were so positive, and I normally love any and all salsas. I suspect that maybe my cider vinegar had gone bad. I thought I would let others know in case they have in the pantry and aren't sure how long it's been there. I wish I had skipped it and used plain vinegar instead.

The salsa is quite good and I think it would work with shrimp, chicken, other fish, etc.

This was amazing! We also added a small amount of orange bell pepper to the salsa and wow, what an awesome dish! We poached the halibut in the oven in a foil pouch with a pat of butter, olive oil, fresh garlic and lemon wedges. Best dinner EVER!

Super easy and delicious fish recipe. Can be used with a variety of white fish (tilapia is a favorite). The salsa can be made a few hours or even a day before - it keeps great! Perfect for a an easy wknight meal or even for guests.

This recipe was refreshing and delicious! I substituted canned peaches for the mango (as I had them on hand) and also added a splash of tequila to the salsa. Yum! I served it over a bed of rice pilaf with grilled asparagus along side.

This was a HIT in my house! The mango salsa was so yummy & easy that we were digging into it with chips. Great mango salsa recipe to make for get-togethers. The only negative was that it took me forever to chop everything up, but I'm slow! Used grilling directions from "grilled halibut, fennel, & tomatoes" recipe (brush w/olive oil, S&P, 450-degree grill ten minutes, turning once, lid closed, oiled grill) & it came out perfect! Great combo of flavors. Hubby loved it & 3-year-old too. Will make again. Used Splenda instead of sugar & added a little extra.

Great! I used pineapple instead of mango and skipped the rice vinegar for the salsa. Will make again. Great for any white fish.

The salsa is awesome. I am going to use the recipe and make it with other things - or even just to eat with tortilla chips.

Overall, this is a very good basic recipe. After making it the first time, I thought it begged for more zing. Salsa refers to "spicy," and with apologies for taking over the recipe, I suggest that this is more of a fresh sauce than a salsa. So, I added a heaping teaspoon of Lee Kum Kee Chili Garlic Sauce. Worked great--this is my standby when I don't want to chop fresh chilies, otherwise I would have added one jalepeno, seeded, deribbed, and minced. I left out the vinegar and added the juice of one fresh lime, half a finely chopped red onion for color, and left out the sugar as the mango was very sweet. I also put the halibut in a plastic zip bag with a minced clove of garlic, olive oil, the juice of 1/2 a lime, s & p, a huge handful of chopped cilantro, and the remaining 1/4 cup of chopped red onion; and marinated it for 2 hours. Yahoooo! Served it with jasmine rice and lime wedges. My guests devoured it!! Thank you for your recipe.

Not as flavorful as anticipated.

Had this at a friend's house and was salivating over memories of the salsa all night! Amazing.
