Tilapia with Mango Salsa

I don't know if I have posted the recipe for mango salsa, but we love it on everything from fish-chicken-pork tenderloin. It is very versatile and oh so good. You can make the same salsa using fresh pineapple and it is just as good.

Printable Version:
1 ripe mango, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1/2 of a small red onion
juice and zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
kosher salt
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil.
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Let rest for about 15 minutes to give the flavors time to combine.

To make the fish, use a non-stick skillet and use 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and 2 tablespoons butter.  While this is heating,  take two talapia fillets and salt and peppered them on both sides. Then  lightly floured both sides.  Carefully, place the fillets in the hot oil/butter. Cook on both sides for about 3-4 minutes. Remove from pan to papper towels. Blot dry and plate the fish.  Spoon the mango salsa over the top of the fish.
