This past Tuesday was National Tequila Day and I thought it would be fun to play with some tequila for a healthy savory meal. Most of the times you see tequila lime paired with chicken and shrimp but never fish. Well here goes the pairing with fish.

    This dish was so easy to make. My family really enjoyed it. I even made a portion without the tequila for my son! He LOVED IT!!!

  2. At what point is the mango added? Is the mango added to the fish or the sauce? When is the fish cooked, what temperature and how long?
