  • 1 cup chopped fresh mango

  • ¼ cup orange marmalade

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion


  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • teaspoon salt

  • 4 (5 ounce) fillets tilapia

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Combine mango, marmalade, lime juice, cilantro, and green onion for salsa in a small bowl.

  2. Mix together chili powder, pepper, and salt; sprinkle on both sides of tilapia fillets.

  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add tilapia and cook until opaque in the center and fish flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

  4. Serve with salsa.

Cook's Notes:

You can use pineapple preserves in place of marmalade.

Salsa can be made a day ahead but wait to add cilantro just before serving.
