Pan Seared Mahi Topped with Mango Salsa with Black Beans & Whole Grain Brown Rice


You will need:

2-4 pieces of mahi mahi (halibut and swordfish work great too)

1 mango diced

1 medium tomato diced

1 jalapeno seeded and diced

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

1 small or 1/2 large red onion diced

Juice of half a lime

1 teaspoon -tablespoon adobo seasoning (enough to season 2-4 pieces)

1 14 ounce can season black beans

1-2 cups of brown instant rice (depending on how many servings you need)

1-2 cups of chicken broth (1 cup broth per one cup of rice)

-Time saver tip-You can use ready rice as well

In a bowl combine all these ingredients and let marinate anywhere from 20 minutes to 3 hours (or more)

In a pot over high heat bring chicken broth and rice to a boil and remove from heat and cover. Let stand for 15 minutes and fluff with fork or stir gently.

In a small non stick pot heat black beans on medium heat add salt and pepper to taste. You can warm the beans closer to when the fish is cooked so they stay warm for serving time.
(if you don't like raw onion on top of the beans you can add them in the bean
mixture, or omit completely.

In a large non stick skillet spray pan with cooking spray or olive oil and season fish with Adobo (or your choice of season, this was Cuban style so I chose Adobo)

On medium heat cook fish for about 6-8 minutes on each side until cook through the center then remove fish and set aside...in the same pan (to save clean up) add the mango mixture to pan until warmed through.

Plate rice with beans on top and fish with warm mango salsa and serve

I don't think the directions actually would want you to "combine all these ingredients' together since the list includes the uncooked rice, black beans, raw fish and salsa ingredients. There should be better instructions. I assume you mean the ingredients for the mango salsa from the mango to the lime juice. The mango salsa tastes great as a cold condiment on the warm fish also. Someone should be checking the recipes before posting them since there are a lot of inexperienced cooks who may not know that the directions are misleading.

Hi Pam, Sorry that this recipe has confused you. If for some reason these ingredients were ALL combined-the recipes would actually work fine. The recipe calls for 'instant rice' so this will acutally cook in any liquid.(this being the liquid from the salsa marinade or the broth as called for). The fish would marinate with the salsa ingredients and if using the tip for the ready rice, the rice would already be cooked. I am glad you seemed to have understood from the "mango indredients" part and down, as you stated. Sorry for any confusion, an I always leave my email so if there are any questions, I am available to answer., Thank you so much for pointing it out..will clarify from this point forward... Allison
