Fresh Mangos

Fresh Mangos, originally uploaded by captainjay.

Our mango tree is dropping mangos like crazy so I stopped this morning
and picked a bunch up. Most of them were pretty soft so I puréed them
but some feel firm enough to slice. Anyone got any good recipes for
fresh mango and mango purée ??

I have a mango pie recipe if you want it.

If you have a large number, then smoothies may be a good way to use them up rather than freezing them. I like to use them in a smoothie (one cup) with plain nonfat yogurt (quarter cup), flax oil (teaspoon) and protein powder (quarter cup) for a healthy breakfast. If needed some grape juice can be added for flavor as needed.

Smoothies sound good, I'll have to pick up some yogurt. Thanks. Mango pie sounds good also, so definitely post the recipe. :-)

This is an easy mango salsa that is good with fish...from January 2006 Coastal Living Magazine.

Blackened Yellowtail Snapper with Mango Salsa

1 cup cubed ripe mango
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 jalapeño pepper, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 (6-ounce) skinless yellowtail snapper fillets
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 tablespoons prepared blackened or jerk seasoning

Combine mango and next 4 ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Brush snapper with melted butter, and coat both sides with seasoning.

Heat a large cast-iron or heavy-bottom skillet until hot. Cook fish 2 minutes on each side or until opaque. Serve with mango salsa.

Yield: Makes 2 servings
