Tilapia with Mango Salsa
This simple dish is absolutely perfect for a warm, sunny afternoon. It uses only few ingredients but provides full range of flavors. Fruit salsa is a fabulous accompaniment for any fish but tilapia with its mild and neutral taste is especially terrific with sweet and tangy mango salsa. The dish is highly refreshing and energizing. Pair it with mojito or margarita for a relaxing Friday evening dinner.
Ingredients (2 servings):
2 x 6 oz tilapia fillets
1/2 ripe mango
2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper
- Peel and chop mango into small cubes. Mix with cilantro, onion and lime juice. Season with salt, pepper and if you want to you can mash it with fork a little bit. If you prefer chunky salsa omit that step.
