Here’s a truly fun way to enjoy fish. The mango’s sweetness marries well with spicy peppers, creating a refreshing salsa. Mangoes are deliciously rich in beta-carotene, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber and contain an enzyme with stomach-soothing properties. Even the corn tortillas are rich in antioxidants.
