Yes, it’s a big name but way easier than it sounds and holy cow; so darn delicious I’m making this dish twice in one week!!! I made this for lunch yesterday and although I haven’t yet tried the following option; I’m confident that the Salsa and the Cilantro Sauce would also be just as good over other seafood options besides halibut or served on top of chicken!
As summer approaches, I find my taste buds longing for light and fresh meals versus the heartier stews and roasted meats that sustained us through winter.
I hope you all enjoy!!
Pan Seared Halibut with Ginger Mango Salsa and Cilantro Sauce
Ginger Mango Salsa
1 mango, peeled and diced
½ small red onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ red bell pepper, finely chopped
Juice from ½ a lime
1/2 a bunch of cilantro, diced
In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together the above ingredients and set aside.
½ cup cilantro
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons lime juice
Hot sauce to taste (I used Tapatio)
In a food processor or blender add all of the above ingredients and blend together until smooth.
1 pound halibut (Or however much you want to make! One pound served two adults.)
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
1. Season both sides of the fish filets with salt and pepper.
2. Heat the coconut oil in a large pan over medium to medium high heat.
3. Once the oil in the pan is nice and hot, place the fish filets in the hot coconut oil in and cook for 3-4 minutes per side
4. Serve the fish topped with the Mango Ginger Salsa and drizzled with the Cilantro Sauce.
As always, Enjoy!!
