A different, wonderful flavor for a firm, white fish. You can use red snapper, grouper or trigger fish. The mango salsa is excellent with chicken as well.

Great recipe, I served it with mashed potatoes. I left out the green chili peper and the mango salsa was still really good.

Very nice! Made this with fresh caught Red Snapper, called Pargo here. Instead of the hot chile and the vinegar, I used a chile and the liquid from Recipe#504105. Yummy! I really liked the spice rub and will be using it often. The only change I'll make in the future is to pan fry the fish - we would have liked it better with a crisp top! Thanks so much for posting a keeper of a recipe!

Made this exactly as suggested, and added fried banana to serve. Really crisp, tangy salsa and overall a really lush meal! Next time I make it I'll probably add a pinch of cayenne or chilli powder to the spice rub to give the fish a little more kick.
