Quick Mango Meyer lemon relish

May 10, 2012

Author Notes: its just a classic relish, simply something whipped together on a whim.. No exciting stories of discovery here. I usually just use mangoes in this recipe, but there was a lone meyer lemon sitting on my counter, its gorgeous orange skin a beckoning.. I didn't have the heart to let its lustre fade away and shrivel just because it wouldn't fit into the jar with its preserved lemon brethren...

Makes: 1 cup


  • 1 Meyer Lemon, Quartered, de-seeded & sliced thin
  • 1 cup peeled & finely diced raw mango.
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper powder
  • 1-1.5 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 pinch turmeric powder
  • 2 tablespoons sesame or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
In This Recipe


  1. Combine the Mayer lemon, mango salt, cayenne & turmeric in a ceramic bowl.
  2. Heat the oil until it 'shimmers' add the mustard seeds and allow to sputter. Pour the hot oil with the mustard over the mango & lemon mix. Stir to combine. Allow to rest for about an hour for the flavors to integrate.
