This is a very light, flavorful dish that my family particularly enjoys. This goes well with salad greens or rice.

Have used this recipe a few times and my husband loves the results. I have substituted the fresh mangoes for frozen ones which I thawed and have been using them since. I find the frozen ones sweeter than the fresh ones. Not the right season for the fresh mangoes here. We will definitely make this dish again. We did not make modifications to the receipe. Read More

The salsa is TOO SALTY!!!! It totally killed it. Anyone who knows their way around a kitchen knows that once you add salt it's a bit difficult to fix if it's too salty. Follow my advice - add half the salt stir and taste and do it at the end of making the salsa. I added fresh mint to the salsa and the sweetness of this did help the taste.(But not enough sorry. My kids who love mango rated this 2 1/2. I had two mangoes lots of fish and doubled the recipe. I also dipped the fish in flour after rubbing with curry rub and this made a nice curry crunchy coating on the outside and the rub was worth 3 1/2. Overall I'd try the rub again but the salsa was salt overkill. Read More

I had never made or eaten tilapia before using this recipe and I must say this is one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. I didn't use the whole chile just because it was very very spicy but otherwise everything else was absolutely delicious. The mango definetly compliments the fish. Very easy and simple recipe to use.

Delicious! We only made the curried tilapia (I didn't have a mango on hand but was looking for a new way of cooking tilapia). It was great - nice and spicy. I had no idea what garlic pepper was so looked up a recipe for it and made it myself. (Combine 1 TBS garlic powder 1/2 TBS of pepper and 1 TBS of parsley) I loved how quick and easy the recipe was. We will definitely make again. Read More

This is a very tasty "healthy" choice for anyone trying to eat better foods. My entire family enjoyed the flavors including my 10 and 2 year old daughters. Just a note: if you are a food processer user don't. The salsa is much prettier if it is hand chopped. Then you can clearly see all the colors! Read More

This was wonderful! Just the rub alone was great. My mango wasnt as soft as Id like it to be so just make sure your mango is ripe enough. I was also worried about the serrano chile bec Ive never had one b4 and it wasnt that hot. I also didnt add the onion bec I dont like raw onions but this was soo good. Read More

I gave it a four but I'm thinking it has something to do with the situation I was in and not the recipe. So I made this wonderfully beautiful presentation of a dinner with all of the promise that the ingredients list gives you and then we had to wait almost 30 minutes to eat because the cable guy was here. By the time we ate it the fish was lukewarm. I can't wait to make it again (sans the cable guy) and eat it at the peak of flavor. Read More
