I’ve always been a huge fish taco fan and they go rad with this recipe. Check ‘em out here. I used to interview a lot of big metal and rock bands from the States and I always asked what they missed about America. The answer would always end up at fish tacos, and that’s the inspiration behind this salsa - it’s easy, refreshing and perfect with a taco. The fruit and fish are like brothers. If a fish taco was a pro-snowboarder, this mango salsa would be his best shred buddy.

Serves 4-6
Cook time: 15 min


1 ripe mango
½ a medium red onion, peeled
½ a cucumber
1 bunch of fresh coriander, leaves picked
juice from 1 lime
sea salt


Cut the mango halves off the stone and slice each half in a criss-cross shape. Cut off and finely chop the flesh with the onion, cucumber and coriander leaves, then scrape into a bowl. Squeeze in the lime juice and mix well. Season to taste with salt, before serving.
