Swordfish and Chipotle-Mango Sauce

From the Merchant Prince, Galveston.

Grilled Swordfish

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Caribbean jerk seasoning (sold in jars)
1 shallot, chopped fine
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
4 5-ounce swordfish steaks

Mix ingredients and marinate fish for 1 hour. Grill over medium heat 2 minutes on each side, or until done. Serves 4.

Chipotle-Mango Sauce

Fresh mangoes, approximately 2 pounds
1 canned chipotle chile, approximately 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste

Peel and seed mangoes, reserving 4 slices for garnish. Mince and strain chipotle, add mangoes, and blend until creamy. Cook uncovered in heavy saucepan over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add salt, and set aside.

Gourmet Mix of Greens

1 log fresh goat cheese
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 head each red tip lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and radicchio

Slice goat cheese in 1/3-inch rounds and coat with crumbs. Heat oil over medium heat in skillet, and fry cheese for approximately 10 seconds on each side.

Preheat toaster oven to 300 degrees. Toast pine nuts for 5 minutes, stirring often so both sides are toasted (or brown in dry skillet over medium heat).

Tear leaves from lettuces and make four individual salads. Place a slice of fried goat cheese on top of each salad, and sprinkle with pine nuts. Drizzle with poppyseed dressing. Serves 4.

Poppyseed Dressing

1 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons poppyseeds
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Mix first three ingredients with whisk or electric mixer. Slowly add olive oil and mix until thoroughly blended.

To serve, cover each plate with chipotle-mango sauce and place a swordfish steak in center. Garnish with mango and lemon. Place salad on separate plate.
