Grilled Mango with Lime, Salt, and Ancho Powder
Recipe from Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction

Serves 4
Grated zest of 1 lime
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
¼ teaspoon ancho chile powder
4 ripe mangoes, halved and pitted
2 tablespoons canola oil
Juice of 1 lime

1. Heat your grill to medium for direct grilling.

2. Combine the lime zest, salt, and ancho powder in a small bowl.

3. Brush the mangoes on both sides with the oil and grill, cut side down, until slightly charred, about 1 minute. Flip over the mangoes and continue grilling until slightly charred, about 1 minute longer.

4. Remove the mangoes from the grill. Using a sharp paring knife, evenly score the flesh of each half lengthwise 3 times and then crosswise 3 or 4 times; do not cut all the way through the peel. Turn the flesh inside out so that the mango cubes stick out. Transfer to a platter and drizzle with the lime juice and sprinkle with the ancho mixture.
