Corn and Mango Salsa

Corn and Mango SalsaI have written about my salsas in the past (here and here), and they typically have a nice kick to them as they contain habanero peppers. This past week I wanted to do something different, in particular for my wife. She loves the sweet as I love the spice. I wanted to give her something refreshing, light, and delicious, and I quickly thought of corn and mango salsa. I had grilled corn the night before and I had several cobs left over, so that is why I wanted to make the salsa. This corn and mango was so refreshing and packed with great flavors from the mango, onion, garlic, cilantro, and more. What more could you ask for, especially that it only takes 15 minutes to prepare. Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • Corn removed from 2 cobs of cooked corn
  • 1/2 tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 large, ripened mango, sliced and cut into small pieces
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tbs fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/2 tbs fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 3 tbs fresh mint

Heat your oven to 425 degrees. After cutting the corn off the cob, toss this with the olive oil, and add the salt and pepper. Lay out the corn on a baking dish and cook for roughly 5 minutes or so, just to reheat and get the flavors from the corn going. Meanwhile, in a bowl, add the remaining ingredients and wait patiently for the corn to be warmed. Remove the corn from the oven, let cool for roughly 5 minutes, then toss into the remaining mixture. Serve immediately or let the flavors marry for a couple of hours. This was so good and refreshing that it did not last very long. We simply ate the salsa with tortilla chips, however this would be really amazing with grilled fish or shrimp. Enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
