2 red snappers, whole, seabass, or barramundi, cleaned and scaled 1.5 kg
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1/2 mangoes, ripe 150 g
1/2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped 1 g
1 tbsp gingerroot, grated 14 g
1/4 dried chili peppers 0.1 g
1 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lime

Before you start

The fish can be cooked using either a broiler in the oven or an outdoor grill.

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the dip.


  1. Using a sharp knife, slash each fish 3 times on each side, to ensure even cooking by allowing better heat penetration. Brush them with olive oil, then cook on a medium hot grill for about 12-15 min, basting occasionally and turning once. Alternatively, put the snappers on the rack of a broiler pan under a preheated broiler 7-10 cm from the heat for about 6-7 min on each side. Check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. To make the dip: peel the mango, cut the flesh from the pit and add it to a blender. Coarsely chop the fresh cilantro, grate the ginger and mince the chili pepper, then add them to the blender. Pour in the lime juice and pulse the blender until a smooth consistency is reached.
  3. Serve the fish with the dip on the side.
