Tilapia & Strawberry Mango Salsa

Healthy? Check. Fast? Check. Delicious? Check.

Personally, I think tilapia and broccoli are two pretty bland menu items; however, they are excellent sources of nutrition! Tilapia is an incredibly lean protein source and broccoli provides an abundance of Vitamin A, Vitamin K and folate. All these dishes needed were a little love from some spices and herbs, and they were instantly transformed into a flavorful dinner meal.

Baked Tilapia with Strawberry Mango Salsa and Sautéed Broccoli

For the Tilapia

  • 2-4 tilapia fillets (fresh)
  • Your favorite zesty seasoning (I used my Tastefully Simple Fiesta Party Dip Mix)

For the Broccoli

  • 2-4 crowns of broccoli, chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese

For the Strawberry Mango Salsa

  • 1 pint of strawberries, diced
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 2 small avocados, diced
  • At least 2 Tbsp of lime juice (add more if desired)
  • 4-6 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425o Spray a foiled baking sheet with non-stick spray. Lay tilapia on baking sheet and generously cover with zesty seasoning. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Once heated, add chopped broccoli to oil with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and sauté for about 8-10 minutes. Be sure to move your broccoli frequently in the pan as it can burn easily. Once cooked, add brown sugar and Parmesan, reduce heat to warm and cover with lid.
  3. Mix all salsa ingredients together in a bowl. Serve over the tilapia.
