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!!!
Love it!!! Hope your adding it to your recipe book!
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?
