Baked Cod and Mango Salsa

We should eat more fish – I think this a lot but yet we really don’t eat it very often and that makes me sad.  We live in New England and although our coastline is pretty small; not that that matters; we still have one and we all love eating most kinds of fish; my daughter is the only one in the family that likes salmon weird huh! None of us actually want to go out and catch it but we all enjoy eating it. I love buying fresh fish but I am not opposed to grabbing the flash frozen variety in my local grocery store. It has never done me wrong so if you see it grab some and enjoy!

If you have never had or made a mango salsa I would like you to check it out. I haven’t had a bad one yet and it goes great with fish cooked any way. I also make a little different one for the fish tacos we love (see link here) Taco Tuesday (Fish Tacos)

A simple salt and pepper on the fish and place it in the oven, while it is cooking I made my salsa to spoon over the top using some fresh cilantro. I also made some sweet potato wedges using some of my fresh rosemary. I really love having fresh herbs on hand, they grow quite nicely out on my back deck in my over the railing window boxes. I wish I could have them year round but that’s not happening here in New Hampshire. At least not outside!
