Baked Tilapia

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!

  1. I wonder if that salsa could also be pureed to make a dressing-like drizzle? Fruit paired with fish is a genius idea.
