Fish with Avocado Salsa

I like the idea of fish with a salsa. Swashbucklers, my favourite Friday night haunt in Auckland, did a great Tuna steak with an Avocado Salsa. Delicious and even tastier because we then followed up with a night of Salsa dancing. The recipe below is similar to what Swashbucklers served up. I flatted with a guy called Brian who had a much simpler version … just avocado, tomatoes and mayonnaise for the salsa.
