Grilled Snapper With Mango Salsa Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Grilled Snapper With Mango Salsa

As I came across this recipe for grilled snapper with mango salsa, I instantly had memories of Dad's fish with fruit salsa. Since snapper isn't the most sustainable of fishes, I'll probably sub in something similar like rock fish. To take a look at the simple and delicious recipe,

I tried red snapper for the first time while vacationing in Mexico last week. I liked it because it was nice and mild, but I can never find decent seafood here in the Midwest, so I might try it with a different type of mild fish instead.

rather not support the overfishing of red snapper. it's on most seafood watch lists. kind of irresponsible to post a recipe that uses it, in my opinion.
