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.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 1/2 pounds halibut fillets
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1/2 small red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded, deveined, and finely chopped (wear gloves when handling; they burn)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 soft corn tortillas (6 inches)
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
