Pan Seared Halibut with Ginger Mango Salsa and Cilantro Sauce

This recipe came from my cousin Tamara (originally from www.everydaypaleo.com.) She says it is delicious and didn’t take long to prepare. I will take her word for it and let you all know about it – I think I’ll try it this weekend – looks absolutely yummy and very healthy!

Cilantro Sauce

  • ½ cup home made mayo
  • 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.
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( didn’t have one on hand so used pomegranate)
  • Juice from ½ a lime ( I used lemon)
  • 1/2 a bunch of cilantro, diced (also added a kiwi diced)
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together the above ingredients and set aside.

Fish

  • 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
  • Season both sides of the fish filets with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the coconut oil in a large pan over medium to medium high heat.
  • 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
  • Serve the fish topped with the Mango Ginger Salsa and drizzled with the Cilantro Sauce.
Comments from Tamara
I didn’t do the Cilantro sauce due to lack of ingredients, but it was good with just the salsa.
Also made a few substitutions as noted above.  We get sick of salmon since its the only fish I can seem to cook decently, and am always looking for easy ways to dress up  bland white fish like halibut – this does the trick.  Served with steamed carrots and sautéed spinach.
Also had lots of the Salsa leftover and I think it would be great on chicken or burgers as well.
