Serves 4 (serving size: 1/2 mango and 1 tablespoon sauce)

This quick dish is a study in balance: Sweet, spicy, sour, and salty flavors come together ­harmoniously and for maximum effect. Look for Mexican crema in the supermarket dairy section or in ethnic markets, or substitute crème fraîche. Serve with grilled steak, chicken, or pork chops.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 2 tablespoons juice and jalapeños in a small bowl.

Step 2

Coat mango slices with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt, black pepper, and ground red pepper. Heat a grill pan over high heat until smoking hot. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add mango to pan. Cook, without moving, 4 minutes or until well marked. Turn and cook 2 minutes; place on a platter.

Step 3

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon juice and crema in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Spoon jalapeños over mango. Drizzle with crema mixture; sprinkle with cilantro leaves.

Followed ingredient list but grilled the jalapenos along with the mango because we like them that way. Served with CL's smoky pork tacos and refried black beans. Very good combo.
