Halibut Plus Terra Organics Salsa Recipe Is Bliss

A short time ago I did a post on the local Tacoma based organic produce delivery service, Terra Organics (click HERE to see my original post). In each delivery box, Terra Organics provides a fact sheet on environmental tips and some recipes to try. The recipes incorporate the produce you received in that delivery.

We tried our first recipe last night from our box and it was amazing and simple. Here is the recipe for Avocado Mango Salsa, courtesy of Terra Organics:

1 avocado--peeled, pitted, and diced
1 lime, juiced
1 mango--peeled, seeded, and diced
1 small red onion, chopped
1 habanero pepper, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
salt to taste

Place the avocado in a serving bowl and mix with the lime juice. Mix in the mango, onion, habanero pepper, cilantro, and salt.


This would be a great salsa for many dishes (or just as a salsa with chips). However, we paired the salsa with fresh halibut grilled in a light preparation. We placed the halibut on a bed of white beans and topped the fish with this salsa. It was delicious, flavorful, healthy, and filling (and just the right amount of heat, spice wise for us). We think other fish would be a winner with this idea (e.g. ahi tuna, mahi mahi, tilapia, and so on).

Thanks Terra Organics for the great produce and recipe to try!

More to come!
