It shouldn’t come as a surprise that in our house, tacos are a favorite dinner. I would say on average, we have some type of tacos at least twice a month. Sometimes for Taco Tuesday, sometimes not. We change up the main protein in them — our two most favorite types of tacos are our Beef & Potato Tacos and fish tacos.
Sometimes, our fish tacos are made with battered fish fillets (YUM!), but most of the time we go for a healthier version: Baked Tilapia Fish Tacos. When having these, I absolutely LOVE pairing them with this Pineapple Mango Fruit Salsa recipe. Of course, this fruit salsa recipe isn’t just for pairing with fish tacos. It’s delicious with shrimp fajitas, or to simply enjoy with tortilla chips. You could even use it as a topping for a baked or sauteed chicken breast.
The fresh ingredients for this Pineapple Mango Fruit Salsa Recipe are simple: pineapple, mango, red onion, jalapeno, lime, and cilantro.
The pineapple and mango are cut into small pieces. While you can use a pineapple corer, I usually just use a sharp knife. I start by cutting off the top, bottom, and outside of the pineapple. Then, I cut the pineapple lengthwise around the core. This gives you large pieces of pineapple that you can cut into smaller cubes.
For the mango, I usually use my mango slicer. Do you absolutely need one? No, of course not. But, mangoes and I don’t have the best history. First, I always thought I didn’t like mangoes and then once I realized that I do like them, I found cutting them open frustrating. I’m sure to some of you this sound ridiculous, but mango cutters make my life easier and I swear by them.
Once I use my mango slicer to cut the fruit off the pit, I score the mango carefully with the tip of a knife. Then, I flip the mango skin outwards and cut off all the cubes of delicious mango fruit.
In a bowl, all of the ingredients are mixed up. Give it a taste and, if needed, adjust the salt and other ingredients.
You can also adjust any of the other ingredients if you wish. For example, if you like a spicier salsa, use more jalapeno. Or don’t omit all of the jalapeno seeds. We love cilantro, so we find 1/4 cup to be a good amount, but you can use more or less. Recipes like this are incredibly flexible so feel free to adapt to your own personal preferences.
