If you’re like me, now that warmer weather is on the horizon, you will be more inclined to ditch the comfort food, laden with carbs, and instead enjoy a lighter perhaps more nutritious meal. Well, today’s recipe is a main course ideal for warmer days and nights – it’s snapper fillet with spicy mango sauce.
This is a super easy dish. The fillet is simply dusted with cornstarch and cooked in a drizzle of oil for a few minutes either side. The sauce gives an interesting flavor, which is just fresh mango, lime juice, jalapeño and shallots. It’s a sweet and spicy layer that complements snapper oh so well.
You can whip up this dish in no time at all. This is the type of dish you can master and easily prepare while your guest sits with you in the kitchen. Open up a bottle of wine when you do. Imagine how cool you will look whipping up this delightful dish while sipping on wine.
Serve snapper fillet with spicy mango sauce for lunch or dinner with rice or veggies. Or as I did, with a blueberry mango salsa – recipe to come.
The mild taste and crispy skin of the snapper, juxtaposed with the soft fruity sauce, is a joy to the palate. It’s a tropical adventure, if you close your eyes real tight!
This is a recipe for two, ideal for date night or lunch with a friend. Give it a whirl the next time a dinner or lunch for two is on the calendar.
