Not only is this blackened mahi mahi with mango salsa healthy, it's award winning, earning fourth place in Hunt's 2009 Best Meals, Best Moments recipe contest. The dish has plenty of stewed tomatoes, along with a number of seasonings: lime, garlic, cumin, cilantro, oregano, ginger, paprika, salt, pepper, ground black pepper and ground red pepper. Mango, red onion and jalapeño pepper add both sweetness and spice. With all of those ingredients, don't forget the most important one: the mahi mahi filets.
As you can see, stewed tomatoes can be just as at home in more exotic dishes as they are in traditional comfort foods like pastas. If you'd like to explore more tomato recipes and resources, keep reading for lots more information.
