Chipotle-Mango Sauce With Cod And Asparagus

20 02 2014

Spotted this awesome chipotle-mango sauce that Guy Fieri used to make BBQ chicken, and thought it would be equally tasty on fish. I was right…this meal is deliciously balanced with both sweet and smokey flavors…and easy and healthy! I could go on an on about how awesome this dinner is, but you should probably just try it out for yourself! 😉

Chipotle-Mango Sauce With Cod And Asparagus

The following serves 2 (compliments of Guy Fieri and This Girl’s Gotta Eat):
  • 1 chipotle in adobo, plus some of the sauce
  • 3/4 cup chopped mango (make sure to peel the mango first)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp unseasoned rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth, either homemade or low-sodium
  • 2 skinless cod fillets, or other mild white fish
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into diagonal thirds

Preheat oven to 250.

In a food processor puree (until smooth) the chipotle, mango, cilantro, lemon juice, vinegar, 1/2 Tbsp oil, garlic and salt and pepper to taste.

Whisk about 2 Tbsp of the chipotle-mango sauce with the broth. Add the broth mixture to a medium oven-proof skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add cod filets and transfer skillet to the oven. Poach until fish flakes with a fork, about 20-25 minutes.

Transfer the rest of the chipotle-mango sauce to a small saucepan and simmer over low heat until thick, stirring often, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat some olive oil in a large saute pan (couple turns of the pan) over medium heat. Add asparagus, season with salt and pepper to taste and saute, stirring occasionally until tender-crisp, 5-7 minutes.

To serve, dish some of the warmed chipotle-mango sauce on plates and top with cod and asparagus. Serve more sauce on top if desired, and a side salad.
