Top Review by PianoCook

I loved this one! The flavors were absolutely delicious. Served over grilled chicken that I marinated in a lemon butter sauce. I used the cilantro, and did like the robust flavor it brought out. They were fresh out of jalapenos at my grocery, so I used a couple of Serranos instead. Turned out wonderful. I didn't have that much liquid after cooking time, and would lean towards calling this a Tropical Salsa, rather than a sauce. Very yummy!!! Thanks. Made for PAC Spring '09.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat.
  2. add garlic and shallots - cook for 30-40 seconds.
  3. Add lime juice, pineapple juice, mango , and parsley - cook down for about 5-7 minutes.
  4. In the last minute of cooking, add butter and jalapeno pepper and stir until butter is melted.
  5. Serve over grilled fish or chicken.
  6. Just a Note:I tried this recipe with cilantro instead of flatleaf parsley and found only minor differences. With the flatleaf parsley, I found that the sauce was mild and acted as a flavor enhancer to the fish (grouper). With the cilantro, I noticed it brought out a bright and robust flavor to the sauce and tasted quite nicely in contrast to the mild grouper. Either way, I found it very tasty!
