Mango Hollandaise Sauce Recipe

mango hollandaise

Now here’s an easy, no-brainer recipe of mine for a sauce that will really add some pizzazz to what may have been a somewhat blah piece of fish using mango! It will work equally well on fried, broiled or even grilled fish like walleye, northern pike, perch or bass! In the photo shown, I also added some red grapes while sautéing the onion for an extra dimension of flavor.

1 package of Hollandaise sauce (any brand will do)
½ ripe mango, coarsely chopped (mangos are ripe when soft to the touch – much like an avocado)
1 T olive oil
1 t butter
1-2 T coarsely chopped onion
1 cup orange juice
1 or 2-oz. dry white wine or vermouth
1 T flour
1 small, finely diced clove garlic (optional)
Pinch of hot pepper flakes (optional)
Bacon pieces (optional)


Make the hollandaise sauce according to the recipe on the package, substituting the orange juice for the suggested liquid.

Meanwhile, sauté the onion – and garlic, if used – in the olive oil & butter. When the onion is translucent, add the mango and sprinkle it all with flour. Sauté an additional 2-3 minutes. The flour will “tighten” the mixture a bit.

Add the wine, and then add this mixture to the waiting hollandaise sauce. Add the hot pepper flakes (or even a bit of cayenne) for a touch of heat if desired.

That’s it. The sauce can be used either under or over any white-fleshed fish, depending upon the desired presentation.

You may also want to slice some of the remaining mango and use it as a garnish on the plate. Enjoy!

Fishing since the age of eight.  Seriously writing since the age of 16. Chef and foodie from the age of 22 years… and counting. So much to learn and so little time. I have enjoyed every minute of it all.  Whether on the water (where I like it best), in the kitchen, or at the keyboard, churning out content, I feel like I have found my place.  I am sharing it with you in the hope that some of what I love to do will rub off on you. I hope to see you On the Lake!
