Excellent! I made this with fresh tuna and my dinner guests raved. I used fresh pineapple, added 1/2 a red pepper, chopped and some extra cilantro. Fantastic!
Delicious combination of flavors. So good with the salmon! I didn't grill my salmon, but baked it in the oven. And I used cilantro, not the basil. Made the salsa the day before to let the flavors blend. Ended up eating the salsa by the spoonful while waiting for the salmon to cook!!
Lovely salsa Chia, hope you don't mind, I used peaches instead of mango, kinda the same consistancy and I had peaches on hand; it turned out great. Also had to use canned pinapple, but did everything else according to the recipe. The salsa went very well with the salmon, we thouroughly enjoyed it. I'm sure the salsa could be used with almost any other fish and probably chicken. I will be making this one again, thanks for sharing.
