Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is an elegant dish that will make it look like you spent all day in the kitchen but is really simple to prepare. The salsa is a kaleidoscope of beautiful colors and fresh flavors. Mango shines through with its added sweetness. Salt and pepper season the fish perfectly. The maple glaze adds just enough sweetness with a hint of caramel flavor. Fresh and light this is a delightful dinner. The Test Kitchen
