Cajun steaks with mango salsa



1.Combine the mango, tomato, onion, garlic, basil, vinegar and salt and pepper to taste in a medium bowl; mix all the ingredients together well.
2.Sprinkle the cajun seasoning over the steaks. Cook the steaks on a heated, oiled grill plate (or grill or barbecue) until they are browned on both sides and done as desired. Remove from the grill and cover to keep warm.
3.Add the bread to the grill pan (or grill or barbecue) and cook until browned on both sides. The bread can also be prepared in a toaster.
4.Top the grilled bread with salad leaves, steaks and mango salsa.

We used thinly sliced boneless sirloin for this recipe. Rump steak or scotch fillet are also suitable. For a less expensive cut, eye of silverside or the first cuts of topside can be used, but they must be tenderised (pounded) for best results. Cajun cooking was developed by French settlers in Louisiana in the United States and is typically spicy.
