Technorati Tags: ,,

 

FOR THE SALSA:    
     
1 ea mango, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 ea small red onion, finely chopped
1 ea avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
3 ea Roma or plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
    zest of 1 lime
1 ea jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 tbsp minced fresh ginger root
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp kosher salt
     
FOR THE FISH:    
     
2 tbsp olive oil
1-1/2 tbsp grated orange zest
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
    salt, to taste
    pepper, to taste
    crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
4 ea 4-5-oz tilapia fillets

 

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Make salsa first, so flavors can mellow.  combine all salsa ingredients in a glass bowl.  Stir to blend, and set aside at room temperature until fish has finished cooking.

In a shallow baking dish that’s large enough to hold the fish fillets in a single layer, combine the olive oil, orange zest, orange juice, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes.

Rinse the fillets and pat them dry on paper towels.  Place them in the baking dish and turn to coat with the seasonings.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish can be flaked with a fork.

Place fillets on a platter, and spoon the salsa over them to serve.

(serves 4)
