Servings: 4 people


  • 1 tbsp light soft brown sugar
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 4 steaks
  • 1 medium mango, diced
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • Small handful of fresh coriander, chopped


Mix the brown sugar and the lime juice together and pour over the steaks, turning to coat completely.

Set aside for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine all the salsa ingredients (1 medium mango diced,1 ripe avocado diced, 1 red chilli, finely chopped, small handful of fresh coriander, chopped) in a bowl and season lightly.

Remove the steaks from the marinade, season, then lay them on a hot barbecue and cook undisturbed for 2-2½ minutes on each side for a medium-rare steak.

Add another minute or so if you prefer medium to well-done steak.

If using a griddle pan, set it over a medium to high heat until smoking hot and cook the steaks as above.

Loosely cover the steaks with foil and leave to rest for 3 minutes before serving.
