***** Ten star dressing. I've made lots of mango salsas which use more or less the same ingredients and I think this is probably better than any of them (including my own). I baked cod with the dressing on it. Can't wait to use the rest of it tomorrow night on some black beans and rice. Jun 15, 2005, 1 member found this helpful

***** This was excellent! I had a little less then 2 cups of mango, and I used Italian seasoning as I was out of just thyme. I served it over pearl barley which was a lovely contrast. A nice tangy dressing complimented the fish. Thanks! Jan 18, 2005

***** OK this is a recipe that I didn't read the directions! I just put all the marinade into the vita mix and pureed. Placed in fridge to chill while I pan fried the lightly seasoned fish stove top. And served on a pool of the "dressing." Yes, I said dressing! This was Fabulous! My DH had and still doesn't know there was 2 mangos in this dressing. This fish would be great served on a bed of wilted spinach or fresh baby greens. But this recipe does make a lot of marinade for the amount of fish. So save some on the side for your salads. Sharon This will most definitely be made aging the way the directions state. Thanks Sharon! Nov 8, 2004, 2 members found this helpful
