Great on really any kind of fish. Mint is my first choice, but most any fresh spice or combination of spices should go well with avocado salsa. Basil is a great choice; use more basil than you would mint, about 1/4 cup per avocado. Add mangoes to it if you really want to go crazy and add chiles to this for an extra kick. Tomatillos are a good substitute for tomatoes.
