"My son's girlfriend, Nicole, named this 'mango-licous'. The mango salsa is great over the tilapia, as a dip or on cottage cheese. Try serving the tilapia over brown basmati rice or lightly dressed salad greens for a complete meal. Then generously top with the salsa. Mango-licious!!" — Chris

1 1/2 tablespoons
grated orange zest
fresh orange juice
salt and pepper to taste
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
mango - peeled, seeded and diced
red onion, finely chopped
avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
roma tomatoes - peeled, seeded and chopped
lime, zested and juiced
jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
minced fresh ginger root
chopped fresh cilantro
this was exceptional! I added pineapple to the mango salsa mix and used powdered ginger that I had laying around. I also just used half a can of diced tomatoes rather than cutting up roma tomatoes. The presentation was virtually identical to the picture but I laid down a bed of fluffy instant rice, then a layer of mango salsa, then th e tilapia, then a topping of mango salsa with avocados and steamed broccoli rounding up the corners. A mango margarita makes a perfect accompaniment. It was fantastic!
I have to admit that I don't like fish, but I keep trying. However, I was really looking forward to the salsa, so I was disappointed that I ended up throwing most of it away. It had too much avacado, WAY too much salt, and the mango got lost. My husband did love the tilapia and ate all four fillets, so I gave this recipe two stars anyway. This was also a lot of work with all the chopping and prep. And not an inexpensive dish either!
I love this recipe. I only gave it 4 stars because I think the fish is better if it marinades for at least an hour and I also like to give it an additional spritz of fresh orange right before serving. The salsa is wonderful and would be good on anything. I purchased frozen mango chunks when I made this recipe the second time, it saved me a lot of time. When I have leftover salsa I like to add a can of drained and rinsed black beans and take that as my lunch. Overall excellent recipe, I will definitely make this one again and again!
Wonderful dish! my kids loved it and they usually won't eat fish. i added a little bit of honey to the salsa. a little bit of sweet to off-set the heat from the pepper. Definately will do this one again!
Fabulous taste! My one quibble: if using all fresh ingredients, all the chopping, mincing and dicing makes the prep time far longer than 10 minutes. Otherwise, this recipe is darn near perfect. My adjustments: We prefer cod to tilapia. I did NOT peel the tomatoes, and I added an extra pinch of salt to the salsa. Served with toasted couscous and a green salad, this was beyond delicious. And it's a beautiful dish. We'll definitely have this again. In fact, this salsa recipe has just become my party salsa.
I have made this recipe maybe 5-6 times so far and love it every time. I have small children so I leave out the jalapeno and red pepper. We usually use the fish and salsa as a filling for fish tacos/fajitas and my husband adds heat to his liking. I do use only about 1/3 cup red onion in the salsa and as much cilantro as I feel like chopping - usually less than called for. And I have tried all kinds of tomatoes and even simple dried, ground ginger. As expected, the flavor varies with the ingredients, but it's always delicious.
Very delicious and satisfying. I pan seared my Tilapia and served it with the mango salsa on top. I also added extra avocado per my taste.
Wow, this is fantastic! I like to make fish for my lunch (I work from home) and the rest of my family aren't big fish eaters. I didn't have any orange juice so I gave the fish a few splashes of fresh lime. I also didn't have an onion, so I used a bit of cucumber & red bell pepper. Delish & healthy. I have enough of the salsa left so I'll make it again tomorrow. Thanks!
