Grilled Snapper with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Serves 4

This recipe is derived from the one and only Gwyneth Paltrow however she uses halibut in her recipe but because I don’t care for halibut, I’ve substituted it with red snapper and I’ve also modified the cooking technique such that I use a grill pan rather than the BBQ.  I don’t own a gas BBQ, only a charcoal Weber, and although I love the taste, it’s just not as convenient for a simple recipe like this…hence why I use the grill pan!  This is a super easy recipe and quite healthy.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and cut into 1/2″ dice
  • 1 medium ripe mango, peeled and cut into 1/2″ dice
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided, plus more for brushing
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 6-ounce red snapper fillets
  • 4 lime wedges

Preparation

  • Gently combine the avocado, mango, tomatoes, basil, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1 tablespoon lime juice in a large mixing bowl. Season salsa to taste with salt and pepper and set aside at room temperature, gently tossing occasionally.
  • Place fish fillets in a 13x9x2″ glass baking dish. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoon oil and 2 tablespoon lime juice over. Season fish with salt and pepper. Let marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes, turning fish occasionally.
  • Prepare a grill pan on med-high heat. Grill fish until just opaque in center, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to plates. Spoon mango-avocado salsa over fish. Squeeze a lime wedge over each and serve.

 

Milos – New York, NY

I found out about Milos on Gwyneth Paltrow’s newsletter GOOP which featured New York.  I knew from her write up that it was going to be a pricey meal (she didn’t disappoint there) however, being Greek and having high expectations, it ended up being one of the best meals I’ve ever had!

The space is fairly large with white walls, tall ceilings and every seat was filled.  We had an 8pm reservation and were there until 10pm something.  New York is a non-stop city that’s for sure.

If your wallet can stand the price tag, put this place at the top of your list.  I am already looking forward to going back to NYC and having a delicious dinner at this fabulous spot.

I loved this detail…heads of garlic were used to hold down the cheesecloth used as a wall separator.  Brilliant!Just like in Turkey this past summer, we got to go pick out our fish for dinner.  Fish is flown in twice daily to the restaurant so you know you’re getting it fresh!Octopus – sashimi grade Mediterranean octopus char-grilled
Grilled Calamari – stuffed with Cretan Anthotiro, feta, manouri cheese, and fresh mint.  Served with fava, saffron.Grilled sea bream – served with olive oil and lemon sauceOur little fried fish:)  I can’t remember the name of it but it was recommended that we get it fried and holy cow was it good.  It was so buttery and tender.  I could have eaten a few of this little guys.And to end the night…what else would we order at a Greek restaurant besides Loukoumades?!
