Pan-Seared Fish with Fresh Fruit Salsa

I did this one on the HuntFishCook show with snapper and grouper. Just about any fish will do. Use my salsa recipe as a guideline only. Use whatever in-season fruit looks best in the store. In the picture, we used mostly mangoes, which is your typical go-to fruit salsa addition.

Pan-Seared Fish with Fresh Fruit Salsa


  • 4 6 - 8 ounce fish fillets
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Fruit Salsa

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh fruit diced into 1/4 inch pieces
  • mango, pineapple, apple, melon, kiwi, strawberry, etc.
  • 2 tablespoons red bell pepper finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons red onion finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil or cilantro minced
  • 2 limes juice only
  • 1 lemon juice only
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Combine salsa ingredients and gently stir to blend. Season with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  • Season fish with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet and lightly brown fish on both sides until just cooked. To serve, spoon a portion of salsa over the fish.
