Paprika-Spiced Grilled Cod and Party-in-Your-Mouth Mango Salsa!


This recipe is one I created this evening after going to the local market. Wild cod was on sale and my husband was craving it. I thought the delicate flavor of cod would work perfectly with a tangy salsa. This recipe was super easy to make and perfect for a hot summer night!
