Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Recipe by  

"Don't let the list of ingredients fool you: this is super-easy, and gets rave reviews whenever I serve it. The salsa can be made the day ahead to save time. Strawberries can be substituted for the mango if you prefer--both are excellent! Combine leftover salsa with some drained black beans the next day for lunch."

Directions

  1. Whisk together the extra-virgin 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, 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 was delicous! I started marinading the fish just a couple hours ahead of time. Then I put the two fillets in a 9x9 pan, drizzled most of the marinade over the top, and then baked it in the oven (covered) at 350 for 15 minutes, and then I uncovered it and baked it at 375 until it was done (probably another 10 minutes, I didn't set the timer). The salsa is great, too. It really makes enough for about 4+ fillets, but I enjoyed the leftovers with chips, so I don't know that I would ever cut the salsa recipe in half. I paired this with some coconut rice and asparagus. I'll definately make this again.

Made the Mango Salsa only for my fish tacos. Everyone enjoyed it.

Great Recipe! I was in a hurry so I pulled out my George Foreman. I set the temp @ 300 & grilled the Tilapia Fillets for 9 minutes. They turned out great! The Mango Salsa adds just the right touch.

Yummy! A little messy but worth it. I used JDPOP's advice and accompanied this with the Herbed Rice and Black Beans. Great meal.

This made for a light refreshing dinner. I did add extra jalapeno. I served with herbed rice and steamed asparagus. I almost didn't make it when I saw the calorie and fat content. This must be a typo. A 6oz piece of talipia has roughly 140 calories. The mango has roughly 110 for 1 cup which is what my mango chopped up came out to. That is of course divided into for 2 people. The olive oil is high caloric and fat, but it is in the marinade. Most stays behind in the bag. The calories in the rest of the ingredients is small. Nutrition facts on the website need to be more accurate. Great dish. Thanks for posting.

Very easy and very tasty! My husband and I both cleared our plates. I rested the tilapia on a bed of long grain rice that was salted, peppered, with a splash of lemon. I can't wait to make again.

AWESOME Taste! But beware, I used a charcoal grill and my marinated fish caused the charcoal to flame up more than once! I only used the ingredients listed to grill, so be careful. To prevent this fragile fish from falling apart while grilling, I marinated it frozen for 40 minutes. As far as the salsa, I only left out the jalapeno. This was because I served the stuffed jalapeno bacon wrap recipe as a side.

This is very good and I personally prefer to make the salsa a day ahead of time to let the flavors merge.
