Tilapia is a uniquely nutritious fish that finds itself rich in essential omega-3 fatty acids. Instead of popping a fish oil supplement, enjoy this delicious BBQ fish with a zesty mango salsa. This fish shouldn't spend more than 10 minutes in the pan to be cooked to perfection. 

Barbecue Tilapia With Mango Salsa and Steamed Asparagus Servings: 2

You'll need
  • 2 4 oz tilapia fillets
  • For the mango salsa:
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint, minced
  • ½ tbsp fresh cilantro, minced
  • ½ cup mango, diced
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tbsp spring onion, minced
  • ¼ tsp ginger, freshly ground
  • ½ tbsp white vinegar
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1. In a medium-size bowl, combine mint, cilantro, mango, red bell pepper, spring onion, ginger, white vinegar, and pepper; toss lightly. Chill for one hour in the refrigerator.
