Recipe Ingredients for Seared Mahi-Mahi with Saffron Risotto and Mango Sauce

1 mango
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbs fresh cilantro leaves
1 clove garlic, quartered
1 tsp chopped fresh ginger
1 oz bottled water
1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/2 tsp mustard
1 lime
1 salt and pepper
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs chopped shallots
1 cup risotto rice
1/2 cup white wine
3 cups chicken stock
1 pinch saffron threads
2 tbs unsalted butter
36 oz mahi-mahi
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 salt
1 black pepper
2 scallions, chopped, for garnish

Recipe Directions for Seared Mahi-Mahi with Saffron Risotto and Mango Sauce

  1. Peel the mango, cut into slices, and drop into the feed tube of a running blender to puree. Add the rice wine vinegar, cilantro, garlic, ginger, water, oil, mustard, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and set aside.

  2. Bring chicken stock to a simmer. In a separate large saucepan on an adjacent burner, heat the olive oil and add the shallots and the rice. Lightly saute: you actually are toasting the rice. Cook until the rice becomes translucent and the shallots become soft, stirring constantly. Add the white wine to deglaze the pan. Begin slowly adding the warm stock, 1 ladle-full at a time, to the rice pan, stirring as you go. This will bring out the starch in the rice and make the mixture creamy. As the mixture absorbs the broth, ladle more into the pot. When the first ladle of stock has been absorbed into the rice, add the pinch of saffron. When all of the stock has been ladled into the rice pot, slowly simmer until the rice is soft and creamy. Stir the butter into the risotto for more flavor and creaminess. Set aside, keeping warm until needed.

  3. Heat a saute pan for the fish. Rub fish fillets with oil, salt and pepper. Place in a pan, skin side facing up. Turn the fish over after 3 to 4 minutes. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes or until done. Do not overcook the fish. It is done when the flesh springs back. Remove the mahi-mahi. Drizzle some mango sauce around the plate and top with chopped scallions.
