Tilapia With Mango Salsa

This is the first time I am sharing a recipe with the Bitches so I hope you like it!



Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Tilapia is such a versatile fish. It's my favorite because it can be prepared in so many ways and it is super easy! I also like that it doesn't have a "fishy" taste to it.

Serves 6

Ingredients:

6 Tilapia fillets
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp minced parsley
2 tsp old bay seasoning
2 cloves minced garlic
2 mangoes
2 jalapenos seeded and chopped
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 red bell pepper
1/2 red onion finely chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 lime

Directions:

Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, old bay seasoning, and garlic, in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the tilapia fillets, shake to coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air then seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour, turning over bag halfway to coat the other side.

Preheat oven broiler.

Meanwhile, using a food processor (or good ol' elbow grease and a knife) chop the mango, jalepeno, cilantro, pepper, onion and combine in a bowl. Sprinkle with garlic powder and add lemon pepper. Cut lime in half and squeeze juice into bowl. Mix well and cool in fridge.

Remove the tilapia from the marinade. Discard the remaining marinade and place fillets into a prepared oven dish. Grill the fillets until the fish is no longer translucent in the center, and flakes easily with a fork.

When cooking is completed place the tilapia filet on a plate and top with mango salsa.

I served this meal for Father's Day and paired it with steamed asparagus and whole grain cilantro and black bean rice.

Try it! I promise you will love it!!
