Mango Salsa:

1 clove garlic

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 mango, peeled, seeded and diced (about 1 1/4 cups)

2 scallions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)

1/2 habanero chile, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped,

Juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh cilantro


1 1/2-pounds skirt steak

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons ground allspice

8 to 10 leaves Romaine, for serving

1 to 2 Kirby cucumber, sliced, for serving


  1. 1. Preheat a grill to high. 
  2. 2. Crush garlic clove, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt, and mash into a coarse paste using flat side of a large knife. Mix garlic paste together with mango, scallions, habanero, lime juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and cilantro. Set aside.
