You guys know what tonight is? It’s LOST night!! I have been waiting for this since last summer when I watched all 5 previous seasons in, like, 2 weeks time. I’m absolutely addicted to the show and it’s not often that I enjoy a show so much. If I’m working on the computer, I almost always have a LOST episode on in the background.
One of my alltime favorite parts of the show is when (undead) Locke says, “I think this is the best mango I’ve ever eaten” so I wanted to do mango salsa in honor of the premier. And you know they ate a lot of fish on the island so I served in on top of pan-fried tilapia that I lightly coated in flour with a little Creole seasoning sprinkled in.
The salsa is amazing. The sweet and spicy combo was perfect on top of the fish! Even Spencer, who typically wouldn’t touch anything like this, loved it. It was also very good with tortilla chips.
