Blackened Snapper with Mango Salsa

With all of this snapper being caught I though I would post one of my favorite ways to eat it:

Blackened Snapper with Fresh Mango Salsa
Makes 2 servings

1 cup cubed ripe mango
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 jalapeƱo pepper, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 skinless snapper fillets
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 tablespoons prepared blackened or jerk seasoning
Combine mango and next 4 ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Brush snapper with melted butter, and coat both sides with seasoning.

Heat a large cast-iron or heavy-bottom skillet until hot. Cook fish 3 minutes on each side or until opaque. Serve with mango salsa.

Grouper and Snapper off Jax

The bottom fishing continues to be great anywhere offshore. Grouper and Snapper are biting. From what I hear there has been a pretty hot grouper bite already. Get out and get 'em!
