Mango salsa

Serves 4, generously

Simple and breathtakingly fresh, this is a good sauce to serve with fish, especially firm-fleshed white fish or tuna.

At home we have made a version of this salsa for years – in Sydney we eat it on Christmas Day with cold glazed ham. It's best eaten as soon after you've made it as possible.

2 ripe mangoes
1 red onion
1 small bunch of coriander, leaves only
1 small bunch of mint, leaves only
1/4-inch of fresh ginger, peeled and very finely chopped
1tsp brown sugar
The juice of one lime
1 medium red pepper, seeds removed and finely chopped

Peel and dice the mangoes and onion fairly finely, and place in a bowl. Add the chopped pepper.

Chop the coriander and mint leaves and add along with the ginger and brown sugar. Squeeze over the lime juice and stir well to combine.
