Barefoot Contessa Parties!, FoodTV Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 40 minutes Yield: 2 servings This is the favorite recipe of everyone I cook for. I have made it for dinner parties, dinner for 2, and for non-fish people (they usually request the fish more well-done). The salsa is really good cold also, and the amount of jalapeno used really changes the feel of the dish (I like to use 1.5 tsp). Make sure the mangoes you use are at least somewhat ripe.
