Mangoes are plentiful during the summer months. Just drive down the street and you can’t help but notice that the mango tree limbs are literally weighed down to the ground with hundreds, if not thousands, of this incredibly sweet and delectable fruit. You will find many different varieties at every mercado, fruteria and minisuper around town. Even the roadside stands have bins upon bins of fresh mangoes.
While on a hike from Los Ayala to El Monteón a few years back, I spotted these gorgeous purple-colored mangoes (shown above). I had never seen this variety before. In speaking with a group of guys packing mangoes along the road near Chacala a week later, I learned that they were the “Tommy Atkins” variety. They also informed me that the more sun mangoes get while on the tree, the brighter their color; the less sun, the greener they will be. In this particular case, once the “Tommys” ripen, the color will change from purple to its normal reddish blush.
On a recent drive back from Platanitos, we noticed this semi filled-to-the-brim with mangos. I barely had to time to take these photos before the driver hopped in his cab and started driving away from the processing plant.
And since mangoes are readily available even north of the border (for all you expats), I thought I’d share these mango-inspired treats. Buen Provecho!
If you’re still in Mexico (or when you return), be sure to stop by George’s Cafe & Gym in Rincón de Guayabitos and order one of their Mango Smoothies. Once you have one, you’ll go back for another… and another. I don’t know what they put in there besides mangoes, but they are insanely delicious!
This recipe and all the crazy verbiage come from the “Sand In Your Shoes” cookbook by Daiquiri Dick’s Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta. Enjoy!
Mango and lime offset each other quite nicely and the rest of the ingredients give this salsa an exotic appeal without making this one of those “gee, it-sure-sounded-beter-than-it-tastes” culinary contrivances. Daiquiri Dick’s often features this salsa served over grilled fish or chicken, with fish tacos made with grilled flour tortillas, over fish coated in cornmeal, or plain with tortilla chips.
2 ripe mangoes* (approximately 2 cups of fruit)
5 tablespoons red onion** finely minced
½ teaspoon serrano chili, finely minced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
¼ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
*Look for mangoes that have turned yellow or yellow with bright red sunspots. Or better yet, put your schnozzle right up to the surface and smell them. If they smell like sweet mango they probably will taste that way. As when selecting other fruits, avoid mangoes that are mushy in places. A little soft, yes; mushy, no.
**If the onion is particularly odorous and you suspect it will taste stronger than you would like it to, cut in rings and soak them first in cold water for 10 minutes; dry them on paper towels, then dice.
Peel and dice the red onion along with the chili and fresh herbs and while you’re at it, assemble the other ingredients. Once you have your ingredients in place, peel the mango. If you’re unfamiliar with mangoes, they have a long, broad core (seed). The best way to cut the fleshy pulp is by slicing off fillets lengthwise. Once you’ve obtained as much off the mango as possible, slice it in thin strips and then crosswise into small cubes. Combine with other ingredients in a bowl and mix gently as not to bruise the fruit.
