About

The start of the summer brings the sweetest, most flavorful, mangos with it. This spicy sauce is a great complement to any fish, particularly, those cooked simply. I’m using Ahi, but any firm white fish will be fantastic as well. Try it with Ono, Halibut, Swordfish, Opakapaka or what’s fresh.
