My recipe of the day  for today  is with the blogging group Improv Cooking Challenge and is for mango habanero glaze which I have used on  grilled maki fish.

It is easy to make using  ripe mango and a few other ingredients. Once thickened you can just brush it on the fish as it cooks. Not only  does this work well on grilled fish,  but you can also   use it on fish in the oven,   or sauteed fish (brushing  it on  after).

And not just fish, but the flavors in this will  also marry  well with chicken, pork, and if you are vegan, tempeh.

To  serve, I  kept this one  very fresh garnished with some chiffonade of fresh basil, some sliced garden tomatoes, a wedge of  lime, and some pan fried ramen noodles (which cook up  in a few  minutes). It makes for a delicious light  supper,   perfect for a hot and  steamy summer day.

When I went to  buy the fish  for this, for some reason I was having the devil of  a time finding  the mahi at the fishmonger.  One had some but  it was horrible. Never buy fish that smells of  ammonia of looks dodgy. I ended up peeking at the frozen section  at Trader Joe’s. While I would prefer fresh fish, sometimes frozen has to do in a pinch.

  1. Why am I just now seeing this? I too, made fish for this event and it was lovely but not quite as pretty as yours. I’m sorry I didn’t visit closer to the event.
