Baked tilapia topped with avocado mango salsa turns a simple fish dish into a healthy flavorful main meal. This dish can be on your table in under 20 minutes!
What do you do with two avocados that are on the brink of being tossed and a sweet mango? You make a quick topping for fish!
Technically calling this a salsa is a stretch because there are no tomatoes in this dish like you see in this Pico de Gallo, a real chunky salsa.
But sometime you just gotta go with what you have on hand!
My avocados barely made the cut. I was contemplating on tossing them because I wanted to make a chunky avocado and mango topping.
Instead of ditching my plans I mixed the avocados like you do for guacamole and added the chunks of mango!
Perfect topping to add to baked tilapia.
The sweet mango with the smooth avocado and a spicy bite from the jalapeño is delectable together!
Baked tilapia is a simple and satisfying dinner. The avocados always add extra fiber to foods so it helps you feel full longer.
Plus avocados are high in monounsaturated oleci acid, a “heart healthy” fatty acid.
The same stuff that is believed to be one of the main reasons for the health benefits of olive oil.
Paired with a hearty dose of protein from the fish makes this recipe a nutritious powerhouse!

I wonder if that salsa could also be pureed to make a dressing-like drizzle? Fruit paired with fish is a genius idea.
Sure worth a try to blend it up, Dede. The flavor combination will be the same!

I never considered using a Mexican topping salsa or avocado on fish. Fish is kinda bland. This would really spice it up!
That looks delicious. I like the combination of mango and avocado.
Once a week we have fish so I always enjoy new ways of making it! This one looks very healthy and fruity!
Glad I can offer a way to switch it up, Katerina!

Oh, your mango lemonade sounds fantastic! I love mangos and they do taste great with avocados!
The pictures are so beautiful. It all looks so yummy!! I will be making this recipe soon.
