Keep the kitchen cool and grill your entire main dish tonight. Grilling the mango brings out the sweetness, which perfectly balance the flavor of the fish. Serve with orange-scented couscous.
6 (1/2-inch-thick) mango wedges (1 mango)
3 (1/4-inch-thick) slices red onion
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1/4 cup diced peeled avocado
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
4 (6-ounce) yellowtail snapper or other firm white fish fillets
Mint sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
Brush mango and onion with 1 teaspoon oil. Place mango and onion on grill rack coated with cooking spray; cover and grill 3 minutes on each side or until tender. Chop onion and mango. Combine onion, mango, avocado, mint, juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl.
Brush fish with remaining 1 teaspoon oil; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place fish on grill rack; grill 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with mango mixture. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
Orange-scented couscous: Bring 3/4 cup fresh orange juice, 1/2 cup water, and 1 tablespoon olive oil to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in 1 cup uncooked couscous, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Can't find snapper? Substitute any firm, white fish instead, like orange roughy or mahi-mahi.
I will start the review by saying I felt this recipe deserves 4.5 stars. It was very tasty, and it provides a great way to incorporate veggies and fruits into your meal. Since I do not have a grill, I broiled the mango and red onion in my oven, and I cooked the fish on a pan on the stove top. It was really delicious. The fruit relish is fancy enough that you can serve this for guests, I feel.
I have not tried the recipe yet but I know it will be great. I love broiled fish and the mango salsa's ingredients look wonderful. I sent this recipe to my Blackberry (prior to setting up an account with My Recipes) and received a link in seconds. I am pleased with the prospect of accessing these recipes from multiple platforms and being able to easily share them. It's like having a cookbook in my pocket.
This was just ok for me. I felt the mango overpowered the fish, plus I really didnt care for the mango grilled, kind of made it mushy. I also felt like the fish could have used some other kind of spice to add to the flavor of the dish. Followed recipe without any changes. I would make this again but with changes.
made this last night for dinner and absolutely loved it. the only changes we made were grilling the avocados (a great side dish on their own) and adding a jalapeno to the salsa. will definitely make this again.
This was very bland and as another reviewer mentioned, the mango became mushy. The salsa in general was lacking in any piquancy. The snapper we used was very fresh and quite delicious, but could have been so much better with a little more flavoring. Won't be making this again.
