Total Time:

2 servings

  • 2 (7-ounce) portions yellowtail snapper fillets, rinsed
  • Pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • Passion Fruit Beurre Blanc, recipe follows
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sweetened coconut
  • 6 slices mango
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 4 passion fruit (or 1/2 cup passion fruit juice)
  • 1/4 cup softened unsalted butter
  • Pinch salt and freshly ground white pepper

Season the yellowtail fillets with salt and pepper, then dust 1 side only with flour, shaking off any excess. In a medium-sized saute pan, heat the olive oil until just nearly smoking and add the yellowtail, flour side down. Sear the fish until golden brown, then flip over and continue cooking 1 minute. Add the white wine and cook 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Serve fillets in a pool of Passion Fruit Beurre Blanc. Garnish the top of each fillet with 1 teaspoon of toasted coconut and 3 slices of mango.

Passion Fruit Beurre Blanc:

In a small saucepan, saute the shallot in olive oil until slightly browned. Add the white wine and passion fruit. Over medium heat, reduce by 3/4. The liquid in the pan will begin to look thick and bubbly. Remove the pan from the heat and slowly whisk in the butter a little bit at a time, making sure all butter is whisked in before adding more. Season with salt and white pepper, to taste, then drain through a sieve and reserve the liquid in a warm part of the kitchen until needed.
