Food as MedicineSM Ingredient: Avocado
Food as MedicineSM TipAvocados contain mono-unsaturated fats — the good kind. One of the fats, oleic acid, has been shown to significantly decrease your LDL ("lousy") cholesterol while promoting the healthier HDL cholesterol.
Culinary Taste TipSesame seeds add not only sesame flavor, but texture to the salmon. There is no noticeable difference in the flavor of the black and white seeds; the color difference is primarily to please the eye.
Culinary Technique TipThe easiest way to remove attractive mango cubes from the mango itself is to slice the mango at an angle and cut cross-hatches. Then, scoop them out with a spoon.
IngredientsOne-quarter cup plus 2 tablespoons hot mango chutney, such as Crosse & Blackwell brand
One mango chopped
4 (5- to 6-ounce) salmon fillets with skin
Three-quarter teaspoon salt, divided into one-half and one-quarter teaspoons of salt
1 tablespoon mixed white and black sesame seeds
1 tablespoon seasoned rice wine vinegar
1 cup diced ripe fresh mango
One-half ripe medium avocado, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
PreparationPreheat broiler. Spread 2 tablespoons chutney over skinless side of fish. Sprinkle one-half teaspoon salt and the sesame seeds over fish, patting to coat. Place salmon on rack of broiler pan, skin side down. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 5 to 6 minutes, or until fish is opaque in the center. Meanwhile, combine remaining one-quarter cup chutney with vinegar and one-quarter teaspoon salt. Stir in mango, avocado, and cilantro. Serve salsa over fish.
SubstitutionsBlack sesame seeds can be found at Asian grocery stores or the ethnic section of select supermarkets. If not available, use 1 tablespoon of regular white sesame seeds. A tablespoon of Eden Shake may also be used. This bottled table condiment consists of white and black sesame seeds, seaweed flakes, and seasonings, and can be found at health food stores and some supermarkets. This recipe also would work well with halibut fillets.
TipsChutney and other thick, sweet toppings are great glazes for fish. The fish doesn't need to marinate, because the flavor is baked right on. Try orange marmalade or whole raspberry preserves. Experimenting in the kitchen is a very good thing.
