Grilled Fish w/ Mango Citrus Sauce

I know, I know. It’s been ages since I posted anything about food.

Finally, here’s a recipe for a delicious dish Mr TBTAM and I made together last night. It was nice to get some quality cooking time together…

Grilled Fish with Mango Citrus Salsa

We got the recipe from a great little site called Mango Recipe Guide. We used Mako Steaks and served it on a bed of rice with a side of brussel sprouts (blanched, cut and sauteed with a little onion, balsamic vinegar and mustard) and a nice Pinot. I don’t know if you can see the fish up there under all that salsa, but trust me it is there. You can use any fish, really. I think it would have been even better with Telapia, my latest favorite fish.

GRILLED FISH & MANGO CITRUS SALSA

For Fish
1 1/2 lbs. fresh fish (tuna, swordfish, mahi mahi)
3 tbsp.fresh squeezed red grapefruit juice
3 tbsp. white wine
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. dried leaf oregano
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
2 red grapefruit, sectioned for garnish
2 large mangos, peeled, pitted and sliced in 2 ” wedges

Mango Citrus Salsa
1 red grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
1 large mango, peeled, pitted and cubed
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 cup diced green, red and yellow pepper
1 large orange, peeled and sectioned
1 medium tomato, diced
3 tbsp. chopped red onion
1 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Place fish in large, shallow dish. Combine in small bowl, juice, wine, garlic, seasonings and olive oil. Blend well. Reserve 2 – 3 tbsp. for basting and pour remainder of marinade over fish. Chill for several hours, turning occasionally. Prepare salsa by combining all salsa ingredients in medium bowl. Grill fish about 6 inches from heat, basting with reserved marinade. Cook until fish flakes with a fork, allowing 10 minutes per inch of thickness, and turning once. Transfer to serving platter. Drain extra juice from salsa and spoon 1/2 cup salsa over each serving of fish. Garnish with grapefruit and mango slices.
