Cajun fish fillet with tropical salsa is a delicious lunch or dinner treat that makes you feel like you are in the tropics. If you cannot find dory fillets, any kind of fish will suffice. Canned fruits may be used for the salsa too.
2 pieces cream dory fillet
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
For the tropical salsa:
1 piece ripe mango, seeded and diced
1 cup fresh diced papaya
1 cup fresh diced pineapples
1 piece long red chili, seeded and finely chopped
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons coriander, chopped
First, prepare the salsa by combining the diced mangoes, papayas and pineapples in a medium sized bowl. Add the chili, fish sauce, lime juice and coriander. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate.
Next, combine the thyme, oregano, cumin, paprika, coriander, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Brush the fish fillets with a tablespoon of olive oil and then rub some spice mix over them.
Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan or skillet over medium heat. Fry the fish for 2-3 minutes per side or until it is golden brown. Transfer to a serving plate or individual plates. Serve immediately with fruit salsa.
