  • 4 (4 to 6 ounce) tilapia fillets
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 cup diced mango
  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 cup diced avocado


  1. Season tilapia with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear tilapia in hot oil until the flesh is firm and flakes easily, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. Mix mango, pineapple, basil, lime juice, and 1 tablespoon of oil together in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Gently fold avocado into the salsa just before serving with the tilapia.
Mealthy tip:

You can pair any type of fish with this delicious and light summer salsa. For added heat, use diced jalapeño pepper in the salsa.

Do yourself a favor and double or triple the salsa part of the recipe because you're going to want more of it. FANTASTIC!
