Lime fish with garlic mangoes sauce.

Tonight meal is a result of playing with flavors and just having fun. As this is my own creation, I did the best I could to write down the amounts of the ingredients  I used.

The combination of mangoes and garlic is subtle and yet powerful as to me sweet and tangy. Every ingredients plays a role in the most delightful taste of the salsa.

A great glass of white wine was the perfect paring.
