Whole Foods in South Lake Union has Honey Mango’s on sale right now 4 for $5…I don’t think I have ever seen anything in Whole Foods for that price!  Too good to pass up so a couple days ago I purchased a few without an actual plan in mind.

Cut up into smallish cubes

Yesterday we (being Maggie and I) settled for a rather light meal- the classic pressure cooked artichokes (also on sale 2 for $4 …love this time of year!).  I can fare just fine with artichokes for dinner, but Mark on the other hand can NOT (and I heard about it last night as he made himself a personal plate of spaghetti) SO tonight, we had to step it up :0)

Put into mixing bowl with chopped parsley

Mark mentioned having fish for dinner so I thought I could make some sort of  chutney out of the mangos.  Inspired by a Pin I saw for a salsa, I whipped up a delightful spring/summer addition to compliment his halibut.

What you need…

  • 2 Mangos, finely chopped
  • 1lb Strawberries, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Red Onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Flat-leaf Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Lemon, juiced
  • Sea salt & fresh pepper, to taste

Put the mangos, strawberries, onion and parsley in a bowl and toss.  Squeeze the 1/2 lemon over the mixture and then salt and pepper to taste.  Mix and then pop in the fridge for about 30-45 minutes.

Perfect topping or by itself

When Mark’s halibut was done, we plated and put the chutney on top…was the perfect flavor combination!  Fresh, sweet and citrusy with a kick. We ended up finishing the entire batch…started as a chutney, continued eating as a salad and then we got the bag of tortilla chips out :0)  Would make this again in a heartbeat and will be going back for more mangos!!
