Crusted Baked Tilapia with Mango Pineapple Salsa
This is a low calorie delicious dish. The flavors of the pineapple and mango are so light and refreshing. I added some fresh basil from my herb pot. I buy my Tilapia frozen and individually wrapped that way I can use as much as I want and the rest still stays fresh. I really enjoyed this dish and will make it part of my go to recipes. Also I cooked this in my toaster oven because it's been sooooooooooooo hot here I didn't want to heat up the house.
Currently I am in New Mexico with my son, daughter-in-law and two beautiful grandchildren. My blog will update as usual because I have done several recipes that I've wanted to share, so please be sure to come and visit. When I return I will post some pictures of my visit.
2-4 Tilapia fillets
1/4 cup mayo
Italian Bread Crumbs for coating
1 fresh pineapple cut into chunks
2 mango's cut into chunks
1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
**optional** 1/2 small red onion diced (I didn't add this because I don't like raw onion)
1/2 large red sweet pepper, finely diced
pinch of salt
thaw fillets, brush each with mayo on both sides, then coat with bread crumbs. Place on a cookie sheet lined with that parchment aluminum paper. (makes for great clean up) Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes until fish flakes and breading is golden. Top with chilled salsa. Enjoy
Combine all ingredients and chill until ready to serve.
