Blackened Yellowtail Snapper with Mango Salsa – Fit Armadillo

Blackened Yellowtail Snapper with Mango Salsa

This week for What’s for Dinner? Wednesday I’m sharing a healthy recipe for another fish dish. The catch of the day is a yellowtail snapper and you’ll be blackening it with seasoning and topping it with mango.  When I found this recipe this weekend on MyRecipes, I knew it would become an instant classic in the Fit Armadillo household. Mr. Fit Armadillo loves pepper so much that 90% of our balcony garden is a pepper oasis (except for when our Swiss chard grows up!) and I’m obsessed with mango.  I love it fresh, as an easy snack when it’s dry, or as the key flavor in sorbet, so why not a top the catch of the day?

If you’re an A-Lister, you had all the ingredients for tonight’s dinner sent to your inbox on Sunday night.  If you’re not on the A-List, get on it HERE and grab these ingredients:

Ingredients to serve Blackened Yellowtail Snapper to Four:

2 c cubed ripe mango
1 c fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 c chopped red onion
1 jalapeño pepper, minced
4 tbsp fresh lime juice
4 – 6 oz skinless yellowtail snapper fillets
cooking spray
4 tbsp jerk seasoning

Putting it all together:

Step One: Salsa time! Make your mango salsa by combining the first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Once it’s made, chill your salsa while you make your fish.

Step Two: Cook up your fish.  Spray your snapper with cooking spray and coat both sides with your seasoning.  Then spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat it up. Cook your fish for about two minutes on each side or until it is opaque in color.

Step Three: Finishing touches. Get out your salsa and top your fish with your sweet and spicy salsa mix.

How can you not love a recipe that is literally as easy as 1, 2, 3?
