Blackened Cod W/ Spicy Mango Salsa

INGREDIENTS

  4 wild caught cod filets

  1 tbsp ground cumin

  1 tbsp ground coriander

  1 tbsp ground chili powder

  sea salt and pepper

  2 tbsp coconut oil

  1 ripe mango, diced

  ½ of a medium sized red onion, diced

  1 bell pepper, any color, diced

  1 jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed, minced

  ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  juice of 1 lime

 

DIRECTIONS: 

First prepare your mango salsa. Place diced mango, onion, bell pepper and jalapeno in a mixing bowl. Season liberally with sea salt and pepper.

Squeeze the lime juice into the bowl and stir to combine.

Add the cilantro in and give it a mix.

 Let sit for at least 15 minutes, but it will only get better the longer it sits.

Taste and adjust the seasoning if you need to. If your mango isn't quite ripe, you can add in a bit of honey to sweeten it up.

For the fish, heat a large skillet over medium high heat on the stove top.

Add the coconut oil to the pan and let it get hot!

Season your fish on both sides with sea salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin and coriander.

When the oil is hot, place your filets in the pan and leave them alone! Don't try to move them. They will just break apart. If you leave them alone, they will form a crust and pull away from the pan on their own.

Cook for 3 minutes on each side.

Top the fish with the mango salsa.

Garnish with a wedge of lime and fresh cilantro. Enjoy!
