Recipe: Mahi Mahi With Fresh Mango Salsa

Caribbean cuisine is a fusion of many different cultures and flavors, reflecting the diverse history of the region. Bold and spicy flavors, fresh ingredients, and vibrant colors characterize this cuisine. Caribbean cuisine includes the food of countries such as the French West Indies and the Bahamas, and is known for its spicy and flavorful dishes, including our favorite Caribbean version of spicy mahi mahi. These dishes are often served with rice and peas, which is a staple in island cuisine, or simply á la carte, with a side of fresh mango or papaya salsa.
