Entree Recipe: Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Featuring a zesty and flavorful salsa that is easy to make and can be prepared a day in advance. It makes for a colorful and fruity presentation atop a mild fish.

Ingredients

  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 2 large ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 3 tablespoons minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

MARINADE DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk together olive oil, of the lemon juice, parsley, garlic, basil, pepper, and salt and pour into a resealable plastic bag or sous vide bag.
  • Add the tilapia fillets, coat with the marinade. Seal with a Vacuum Sealer, we like the Nunesware Vacuum Sealer set to the marinade option. If you don’t have a vacuum sealer, a Ziploc bag can be used if the excess air is squeezed out before sealing.
  • Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

MANGO SALSA DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the mango, onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper in a bowl.
  • Add the lime juice and the other half of the lemon juice and toss well.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and refrigerate until served.
    Can be made up to one day in advance.
