Fresh Mango Toppings and Sauces Sparkle with Imagination and Flavor

Orlando, Florida (June 22, 2021) – This summer, the National Mango Board (NMB) encourages operators to finish the dish and glamorize the plate with the vibrant color and tropical appeal of fresh mango. Popular and always ready to use, mango complements a wide array of seasonal ingredients to maximize the zest, flavor, and value your toppings bring to the dining experience. To get started, you’ll find saucy inspiration, including mango salsas, chutneys, and BBQ sauces at Saucy Summer with Mango.


Roasted Mango Salsa

According to Jason Hernandez, chef for the NMB, “The versatility of mango makes it a go-to ingredient for toppings, condiments and sauces.” For his Roasted Mango Salsa, Chef Jason roasts fresh mango pieces along with peppers and chilis to deepen the salsa flavors on his favorite, fish tacos. At Sun Surf Sand, in Fort Lauderdale, the kitchen uses mango to brighten the flavors and colors of its Bavette Steak with Yucca and Mango Chimichurri. The Culinary Institute of America’s Chef Sarah Linkenheil‘s easy-to-make Pickled Green Mango Relish adds a zesty kick to charcuterie plates and sandwich fillings.
