This is a recipe I emulated from a top restaurant in Denver. It turned out great. Friends and family give it rave reviews. I serve this with Long Grain and Wild Rice.

It was amazing, I added the mango and that was a nice touch I think next time I am going to add a little more spice to it.

I made this receipe for my jackpine savage nephew, his fiancee, and their two hunyuck buddies. Fantabulous!!!! For the salsa, I made it with one full red pepper and one full yellow pepper and added one fresh mango to the recipe. Use fresh cilantro in lieu of dried adds to the flavor, also. I got an A from the boys from up north who were born and raised on wild game they shot or hooked. Chef Francois

I don't think you could improve on steelhead trout cooked any other way. This is colorful, acidic, and fruity.Extremely easy to make and we served it over brown rice.
