1. Mix blueberries, mango, onion, coriander, lime juice, chili, sugar and salt in a bowl. Don’t worry about crushing the blueberries; you want to release the juice for that touch of sweetness! Set this mixture aside.
2. Lightly coat a grill pan or skillet with olive oil and place it over medium-high heat. Season the fish fillets with salt and pepper, and place them skin-side down in the pan. Cook the fish fillets for about four to five minutes until the skin is lightly charred and crispy.
3. Turn the fish fillets and sear for two to three minutes more until cooked through. Avoid overcooking; the fish should flake easily with the gentle touch of a fork.
4. Top each piece of fish with the blueberry mixture and serve.
*Blueberries are hard to find in the Philippines, so when unavailable, you can replace them with diced tomatoes—a rich source of vitamin C, iron, and lycopene
Tip: Rotate among the DHA-rich types of fish. Pick oily fish such as salmon, sardines and mackerel (saba in Japanese).
