So... does mango taste a little fishy to anyone else?

Like Tree10Likes

I don't care for the smell of mango. I'd leave the kitchen anytime someone in my family started eating one.

What is the connection to cilantro? I like cilantro just fine.

cilantro taste like soap to me, but a little of it in the right dish, taste yummy to me.

How timely this post is--I've been eating frozen mango the past few days like it's going out of style.

I love mango--no fishy taste to me. When fresh mangoes are not ripe enough, they do have sort of a "piney" taste to me though, especially right under the peel.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
Fresh mango never tastes fishy but I've had some frozen one that did. And I doubt that it had been touching any seafood. The taste was close to salmon fat. Wasn't a pleasant experience.

Junab, you made my mouth watery! Love green mangoes with salt! Love mangoes in all forms!

Yeah the cilantro thing is probably down to different phenotypes being sensitive, hypersensitive, and insensitive to the "good" and "bad" tastes (smells) of the herb. The same is true of a lot of other scent/flavor chemicals, both found-in-nature and lab-only.
Many years ago I hated cilantro, loathed it! These days? I can't get enough of it! I have no idea what happened to bring about the change, but I always add extra when I cook with it I love it so much.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I love mango salsa. I love mangoes.

Did it have any fish oil added to it?

Look. Here's a cooking board thread from 2001 where someone else thinks their frozen mango tasted fishy.

And another one from a different message board.

Frozen mangoes smell like fish? - AnandTech Forums

I feel comforted that at least I'm not the only one in cyberspace that thinks so.

I haven't tried frozen mango but I do notice that some fruits come out smelling and tasting like fish if they've been in the freezer for a while, whether there's fish in the freezer or not.
Eres o te haces?
Girl u know the thing lol. I used to have a mango trip in DR and take the green mangoes and put salt and vinegar or lemon. Mmmm

3B/3C Recovering from heat damaged :/... almost like transitioning because most of my hair is straight it won't curl, thsi is due to sooo many years of using heat without stoping.

Braid out and twist out are my staple styles right now! Not using heat since December 2011. Still experimenting with products!
We're in mango season here, yay! No fishiness that I've ever noticed.

My SO has always said coriander (cilantro, I believe) tastes like soap, now I can tell him he's not the only one.
