  1. Preheat a grill for medium heat, and place the rack 3 inches over the coals.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the green onions, cilantro, bell pepper, mango, olive oil, lime juice, garlic salt, and black pepper; set aside. Lightly coat four squares of foil with olive oil or cooking spray. Place fish diagonally on the foil, and stuff each with 1/4 of the mango stuffing. If it doesn't all fit inside the fish, then just place the remainder on top of the fish. Fold the corners of the foil over the head and tail of the fish, then fold the remaining corners over the body of the fish.
  3. Cook the packets on both sides for about 20 minutes total, until the fish has cooked and flakes easily.

Great Recipe. Wouldn't change a thing. Used Ruby Trout. Forgot to add the jalapenos, but luckily had some jalapeno hotsauce and added it at the end. Made some roasted corn and one of those Lipto...

I want to try this recipe since it has such great reviews but as I was compiling my shopping list I saw the recipe called for olive oil, which isn't in the recipe steps. Then as I was going thr...

Very tastey - the fish was tender and delicious and the compote was equally as good. No doubt this is a keeper!

This was fantastic! I just found a new favorite fish recipe. I used vidalia onion instead of the green ones. When I make it again, I'll use more mango.

This was VERY good. I made it exactly as the instructions said, and it could not have been better! I love the mango/jalepeno mix...
