Summer is here! With the season in full swing what is better then a grilled fish recipe? A grilled fish recipe with mango salsa of course! This is one of my favorite recipes of all time and I have been making it for several years, it's light, tasty, and colorful and perfect if you are having guests over. I made this back in the summer of 2009 for a party with some co-workers and friends at my friend Adam's house. That was an awesome summer and I have many a great memory from that time of life, so today I share with you a delicious, and easy fish recipe that has a great deal of nostalgia associated with it.
You will need:
4 Tuna steak 4-6 oz each
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
Season your fish with salt, pepper and garlic then lightly oil each fillet, over medium high heat on a grill or grill pan, cook fish for about 3-4 minutes on each side (mid rare). Set aside.
Salsa:
2 small mangos or 1 large, chopped into small dice
1 small shallot, minced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced small
1 jalepeno, diced small
Juice of one lime
Salt and pepper
3 tbsp cilantro, chopped
Mix ingredients together, can be made the day before. Serve on top of fish fillets and serve with lime wedges. The perfect dish for hot summer nights.
