I love topping tacos with fruit salsas, which make for a clean, refreshing dish. The sweet and citrusy flavors complement the savory fish while the chipotle crema adds some spice.

To assemble tacos:

  1. For the salsa: Peel the mango and cut out pit. Dice and place into medium-sized bowl. Add the pomegranate arils, jalapeno, cilantro and lime juice. Toss until combined and season with salt and pepper. Set aside in refrigerator.
  2. For the Chipotle Crema: In a small mixing bowl, combine yogurt, buttermilk, minced chipotle chile and tablespoon adobo sauce. Stir until combined, then cover and place in fridge.
