      Directions

      For the rice: Combine the rice and water together in a large saucepan. Place the pan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Cook the rice for 20 minutes.

      For the sauce: Peel the mango and slice the flesh off the pit. Dice the mango flesh.

      In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the mango, cilantro, garlic, and ginger. Set aside.

      Heat a large, nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat.

      Rub the fish fillets with the oil, salt, and pepper. Place in the hot pan and sear until golden on 1 side, 3 to 4 minutes.

      Turn the fish over and cook until cooked through, another 3 to 4 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the fish. You'll know the fish is done when the flesh springs back. Remove the fish to a plate.

      When the rice is cooked, fluff it with a fork and gently stir in the cilantro and scallions. Season with salt, to taste.

      Place a mound of rice on each plate. Top with mahi-mahi. Spoon the mango sauce over each fillet and top with chopped scallions. Drizzle the liquid from the mango sauce around the rice.
