    I enjoyed this! It was very easy to make. Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.

    I was looking for a quick fix to give perch a tropical flair and this was it! I used chopped red onion (a quarter of one) instead of green, left out the yellow pepper (had no sweet peppers on hand) and used chopped regular tomato instead of cherry/grape. I also used a whole mango instead of half, added more cilantro and garlic, and left in some of the jalapeno seeds. I put the mix in the fridge for about a half hour while my perch was baking, then served it over the fish with hot rice. Very tasty! I will be trying this again with yellow pepper next time. Thanks!


This is a recent photo of myself and my husband on a recent trip to Chicago. UPDATE: I am originally from Calgary, Canada, lived in Korea for 4 years where I worked as a teacher and met my husband, a US soldier. After he came back from Iraq, we reunited at Ft. Campbell, KY where we lived until he got out of the army and then moved to Flagstaff, AZ for 2 years and then moved to Tucson. We lived in Tucson for 2.5 years where my husband had a law enforcement job. We recently moved to Minneapolis, MN. We got married in Sedona, Arizona 4 years ago in the courtyard of a beautiful Inn in the Red Rock Mountains. My all time favorite cookbooks are the BEST of BRIDGE series written by a group of Canadian wives who met regularly to play bridge and had to bring a dish to each game. Their cookbooks evolved from there. I highly recco any of their cookbooks and/or their website. I really enjoy cooking and missed it alot when I was in Korea because I didn't have an oven, which are few and far between there.
