Mango & Radish Salad with Crispy Fish

Crispy Fish Salad 6 (1)

I never eat fried fish…rarely fried anything, but this recipe came across my radar & I had to give it a whirl! Plus, I have to say that eating fried food at home made me feel 100% better about eating it – way less oil used & with only the freshest ingredients. The best part is I ate fried food & felt amazing after it!

On to the prep work…

  1. Fill a small bowl halfway with 6 ice cubes & water, thinly slice 1 small red onion – add onions into bowl, let soak for 20minutes then drain & pat dry with paper towel
  2. In a large bowl to make salad add: 1 pitted/peeled mango, 6 thinly sliced radishes, 1C chopped fresh cilantro & onions from step 1 – toss & refrigerate
  3. In a bowl to make dressing add: juice from 2 limes, 1 finely chopped shallot, 1/4C EVOO, 3T Bragg’s amino acid, 1/2T minced ginger, 2t honey, 1t sriracha, 1/2t minced garlic & 1/4t pepper
