You don’t know who this girl is, do you? The girl who hasn’t posted a decadent calorie laden treat in almost over a week. Don’t worry, that girl will be back soon with lots of butter and cream filled treats to share.
I have just one more grilled recipe for you to “Get Your Grill On”. This was my husband’s favorite because he’s a sucker for mangoes. Mangoes are so good right now. They are juicy, sweet, and everywhere. This dish is really healthy and although it’s marinated in a little olive oil you definitely aren’t eating all of the marinade. Tilapia is a mild fish and is a canvas for any flavor that you want to infuse in it. This tilapia is marinated in a garlic, parsley, lime sauce and topped with sweet mango salsa. So light and refreshing. We actually have it the menu again for this week we enjoyed it that much.
To cut your mangoes, start by cutting on both sides of the core or pit. Mangoes have an oblong hard pit down the middle shaped like a disk. You’ll have to feel the mango to see which way it runs. It will be soft on both sides of the pit. My husband is the mango expert in our house so I took some photos of him cutting it.
Here’s the core. You can salvage some of the soft flesh on the side of it but most of it is hard and inedible.
Then you want to slice it just like you would an avocado, cutting all the way down to the peel but not slicing all the way through it. Flip the skin out and you can slice off cubes of mango. For this salsa, you’ll want your cubes a little smaller, but we were just eating this mango.
I like to use Costco’s tilapia fillets because they tend to be a little firmer which makes for easier grilling. But you can’t beat fresh tilapia from your grocery store – just make sure to be more careful when flipping it on the grill.
