Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse the fish; pat dry with paper towels. Place the fish fillets, skin sides down, in shallow dish.Advertisement
For rub, stir together sugar, lime peel, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the fish; rub in with your fingers. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours.
Meanwhile, for salsa, combine mango, cucumber, scallions, lime juice, cilantro (or mint), jalapeño pepper, garlic, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
Prepare grill for indirect grilling. Test for medium heat above drip pan. Place the fish fillets, skin sides down, on greased grill rack over drip pan, tucking under any thin edges. Cover and grill for about 20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. If desired, remove the skin from the fish. Serve the fish with the salsa.
