Chef Allen Susser recommends using mangoes at their ripest. This recipe was launched at the South Beach Mango Festival.

Susser was born in Brooklyn, New York, and worked in the kitchens of Le Bristol Hotel in Paris and Le Cirque Restaurant in New York.

While working at the Turnberry Isle Resort, he played with the tropical fruit and fish that Florida offers, and experimented with the juxtaposition of fruit and fish.

Food and Wine Magazine named Allen Susser one of the “Top 10 New Chefs” in America in 1981, and in 1994, he won the  James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef Award.
