    WiGal's Note:

    From Cooking Light. Son, DIL, and 4 year old gs recommended so fixed it myself. Loved the salsa! GS eats it w/o the jalapeno in salsa. Serve with coleslaw and black beans or rice. Shh... cheat and make it with ground cumin and cilantro that comes in a tube. Think if you wanted a stronger taste, you could apply rub earlier. Might be good on shrimp.

      Great flavor, we loved it. Make sure your spices are fresh for best taste, I know my cumin seeds weren't, I will make it again. Very refreshing, great summer dish! Thanks

      Fantastic! DH now wants me to cook his fish this way. He enjoyed this very much, and he doesn't like avocado. :o . We had 1.3 lb.s of fish, so I heated 2 large pans, each with 2 tbsp. canola oil to prevent crowding. (That was a smart idea.) The fish, by itself, was magnificent. The salsa was very good, too: the avocado and mango help to calm down the cumin on the fish, so the melange was intriguing, I mean very, very tasty. This was so good that I might buy a taco stand so my tortillas will hold their shape as they cool. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
