Mahi Mahi with mango butter sauce

>> Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Tonight I prepared a new dish that brings together a few of my very favorite ingredients. Playing off my idea for a restaurant someday called FishBerries (if you are reading this, you must promise not to take my restaurant name!), I paired a mahi mahi with mango, kiwi and pear butter sauce. The ingredient list for the dish is:

Mahi mahi (skin removed)
Mango (skin removed and finely chopped)
Kiwi (skin removed and finely chopped)
Pear (cored and chopped)
Mustard powder
Unsalted butter
Red wine vinegar
Light rum

To make the mango butter sauce, combine 3/4 of each fruit variety in a food processor or blender with 1 teaspoon of mustard powder, chopped garlic and red wine vinegar. Add in 2 tablespoons of butter and blend until smooth and creamy.

In a large skillet over medium heat, toss the mahi mahi with mango butter sauce, coating all sides. Cook in sauce, turning periodically. Just before the fish is flake done, add the remaining 1/4 chopped fruit to the pan to heat. Toss in a splash of light rum if you are as bold as I!

Serve the fish with vegetables and rice. When plating your fish, sprinkle the fruit topping over top and add a dab of the heated mango butter sauce. Enjoy!
