Amberjack with Mango-Banana Salsa

Amberjack is a lean, firm-fleshed white fish. If it's not available, substitute grouper or mahimahi. The flavorful fish and fruit salsa are also great served as fish tacos—just break the fish into pieces and serve in tortillas along with the salsa.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, 1 tablespoon juice mixture, and 1/2 cup Mango-Banana Salsa)
