Grilled Tilapia with a Mango Salsa

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa | The Baking Beauties
 

I was so impressed with this recipe, I just had to share. It is a recipe that I got from AllRecipes.com, I don’t think I even changed it up at all. And that is very uncommon for me, I usually have to change a recipe. This one, however, looked perfect to me on paper, and on my plate as well. We really, really enjoyed it. Topping your fish was salsa is a fantastic way to get a healthy protein, plus more fruits/veggies into your diet. If hope you’ll give this quick dinner a try sometime, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (6 ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Whisk together the olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, parsley, garlic, basil, 1 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the tilapia fillets, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. Prepare the mango salsa by combining the mango, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper in a bowl. Add the lime juice and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  4. Remove the tilapia from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Grill the fillets until the fish is no longer translucent in the center (I used my grill pan to do this), and flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Serve the tilapia topped with mango salsa.

    This does look amazing. And I am totally like you. I rarely make a recipe as written. Not even sure why, except that I think I am just bad at following directions and just like to try and get creative.:)
