By Rick Moonen

1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1/3 cup orange juice
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 lemon, zested
4 6-ounce flank steak fillets, about 1/2-inch thick
Coarse salt
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 teaspoons jerk seasoning*  

* Jerk seasoning is available from specialty markets or online.

Preheat the grill. To make the mango sauce, in a food processor, process the mango, ginger, orange juice, lemon juice and lemon zest until smooth.

Season the steak with salt and rub each piece with a teaspoon of the oil. Rub 1/2 teaspoon of the jerk seasoning into each side of the steak. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare.

To serve, spoon the mango sauce onto each plate. Slice the steak, and fan the slices over the sauce.
