Red Snapper with Mango Salsa



I got a lovely piece of red snapper on sale in whole foods recently I got to craving it after Michael on the  chow and chatter facebook page said it was his favorite fish. I also wanted something really nice to cook on our new cast iron grill pan ;-) red snapper can be endangered depending on where it is fished so be sure to ask.  I am also very keen on buying sustainable fish and was impressed with @WholeFoodsPR on twitter for sending me useful links on their polices another great resource is The Monterey Bay aquarium seafood watch guide they also have an iphone and android app. I simply pan fried the fish and served it with a mango salsa and cous cous it was delicious. 





Ingredients:

  • 2 small pieces of red snapper - lightly marinated in olive oil, salt and pepper
  • a box of cous cous 
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1-2 small green chili's finely chopped depending on level of spiciness required
  • 1/2 red onion chopped 
  • one small tomato chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • a pinch of cumin
Method:

  1. grill the fish
  2. for the salsa chop and simply mix all the ingredients together
  3. serve the fish with the salsa and cous cous 
What resources do you use when buying seafood?
