Makes 4 servings


  • 2 large ripe mangoes
  • 1 teaspoon plus 1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 3-6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (depending on tartness desired)
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • 1-1 1/4 pounds fresh tuna or salmon fillet, cut into 4 narrow, thick portions


Peel the mangoes. Cut the flesh away from the large pits; cut the flesh into rough cubes. Place the mango in a blender or food processor.

Warm the teaspoon of oil in a small saucepan over moderately high heat. Add the shallots and vinegar and bring to a boil. Cook until the liquid is reduced by half, 3-5 minutes.

Pour the shallot mixture into the blender and add the lemon juice, Tabasco and remaining 1/4 cup of oil. Process to a smooth puree.

Place a nonstick skillet over moderately high heat. Meanwhile, lightly brush the fish with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the fish in the hot pan and cook for 30 seconds on each side, until the fillet exterior is cooked, and then cook the interior to the degree of doneness you prefer.

Serve the fish in a pool of the mango sauce.
