Ingredients

Mango Sauce

  • 1 medium mango, pitted, peeled and coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped, seeded jalapeño chile
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro, if desired

Halibut

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 (6-oz.) halibut fillets

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In food processor bowl with metal blade or blender container, combine all mango sauce ingredients except cilantro; process until chunky. Stir in cilantro. Set aside.
  • 2

  • 3

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To cut a mango, use a sharp knife to make a cut through one side of mango, sliding knife next to seed. Repeat on other side of seed, making 2 large pieces. Make cuts in crosshatch fashion through flesh just to peel; bend peel back and carefully slide knife between peel and flesh to separate. Discard peel; chop flesh.
  • tip 2
    Lean, yet dense, halibut is a great choice for grilling. If you can’t find halibut, opt for similarly-sturdy substitutes, such as snapper, sea bass, grouper or mahi mahi.
  • tip 3
    The brightness of freshly-squeezed lime juice is unique, so avoid substituting bottled lime juice if you can. This recipe requires 1/4 cup lime juice total. You will need 2 medium or 3 small limes to get that much juice.
