Fresh Fruit Compote

June 22, 2009

~ Mary~

Mangos and strawberries were on clearance  sale at the A&G today.  AND there were shark steaks in the freezer section.  I did a little reading and found that shark is also often referred to as swordfish because the general public is “afraid” of the carnivorous big man-eating shark and swordfish sounds more appealing.

I don’t care what they call it I’ll be buying it again!  It’s meaty, moist and firm.  It grills up great and needs no tender loving care.  I just used a little garlic oil and kosher salt and pepper then topped it with this lovely refreshing compote. 



Fresh Fruit Compote


1 1/2 Cups Diced Mango

1 1/2 Cups Diced Strawberries

Set aside.

Mix in small saucepan over low heat until sugar has dissolved:

1/3 Cup Brown Sugar

1/3 Cup Rice Vinegar

2 Tbsp Fresh Minced Ginger

Once dissolved add 1 cup of each fruit.  Let simmer for 15 minutes then add:

1/2 tsp Cardamom

1 tsp Mint

Stir in the rest of the fruit and serve over fish or chicken.

    Swordfish is not the same as shark. Swordfish is an actual fish species ( ).

      Hey Petra ~
      Thanks for looking in on the site.
      I think you misunderstood what I wrote.
      It says shark is often referred to as swordfish – (we as the public are unaware that this happens and when it does happen).
      I just thought it was an interesting tidbit of info to share – I hope I don’t confuse too many other folks!
