Mango Mania-Let’s Salsa

The past few weeks has seen a lot of Thai cooking in my kitchen.Pad Thai.Green and Red curries,Jasmine Rice,Tom Yum soup and the list just goes on.Last night I made  some Thai fish cakes(with s fresh white fish and shrimp).I was looking for something fruity and refreshing to accompany the fish cakes.That’s when the mangoes decided to do the Salsa.

A riot of flavours,delicious,colourful and healthy.I could even eat this as a salad anytime.

Here a mango…There a mango…Everywhere a Tangy mango…We sure are lucky to find this wonderful fruit in all the local supermarkets here in Dubai.Such a variety that too…Kenyan Mangoes,Indian Alphonso,Pakistani,Mangoes from Thailand and Phillipines…True Mango Mania at the moment.

So while Mangoes are in season why not enjoy them in every possible way?

Some variations for  this Salsa:

For the ingredients:

  • Corn and Red bell peppers
  • Avocados and chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped green olives and jalapeno peppers

For the Dressing:

  • Lime juice,Olive Oil,salt and pepper
  • Lime juice,fish sauce,chopped thai red chillies
  • Lime juice,sesame oil and seeds

I do hope you will enjoy cooking with mangoes this season.Please do share your favorite way of cooking with Mangoes.Would love to hear about it.

Summer is here,do stay cool and hydrated everbody.Cheers to you all.

With Love
