I loved the taste combination of the tomato and orange, very unusual. I eliminated the green onion. This was a great compliment to the fish. I have used this salsa with different kinds of fish and also ate the leftover salsa with grilled chicken.
The salsa makes the fish! The sweet-pepperines taste of the salsa is a maybe unusual, but oh so good combination with fish. The cumin mixture sets the counterpoint to the salsa and flavours the fish. I have used a whole sea bass and it works great. Cooking time for the whole fish was the same as given here. I would serve it with a green salad and some white bread. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.
This wasn't bad. I'm not a fan of non-traditional salsas. I've tried them before and didn't care for them, this one wasn't bad though. My DH liked it. I have to say that I thought that the tomato and oranges would clash but they kind of evened each other out. I just may make again but will probably just make enough salsa for my DH.
