I made this dish for my family two times last week, and I kid you not, both times my husband exclaimed “This is a really good meal!”
I was actually very surprised, because usually he refers to this kind of meal as “frou frou food.” But he ate every last bite. I even overheard him talking to his Pa on the phone, telling him “this mango stuff is freakin good!”
So there you have it. Paleo Blackened Swai with Mango Salsa. Cowboy approved.
