Mango Salsa

White Lightning


  1. Preheat oven to 200 C / 400 F.
  2. Mango salsa: Finely dice all the ingredients for the mango salsa and add to a bowl. If using a large red onion reserve a quarter to be roasted for the white lightning sauce. Set aside the mango salsa while you prepare the fish.
  3. Fish: Rinse and pat dry the fish. Place on a foil or parchment lined baking tray and drizzle on all sides with oil. Sprinkle with premade or homemade seasoning blend. Cut a jalapeno and a small red onion (or the reserved onion from the mango salsa) into quarters or thing strips. Add to the baking sheet along with the fish and drizzle with oil. Bake at 200 C / 400 F for 10 – 12 minutes.
  4. Tortillas: During the last 2 minutes of baking the fish, add the tortillas to the oven laid out on a sheet pan. They can overlap a bit. Heat at 200 C / 400 F for a total of 4 minutes or until warmed through and slightly crispy on the edges.
  5. White lightning: When the fish comes out of the oven, add the roasted jalapeño and onion to the bowl of a food processor with the yogurt, mayo, spices and lime. Blend until smooth adding more sweet, heat, acid or salt as necessary.
  6. Assembling: The tacos are best eaten immediately so they don’t get soggy. You can either do this by serving family style (everything goes into bowls and it’s make your own taco) or youc an assemble and serve right away. Roughy cut the fish into pieces. Layer the fish in the tortilla with a bit of lettuce, mango salsa, white lightning sauce, and cilantro for garnish. Serve with extra sauce on the side.
