A Quick Summer Dish

Recently, we were invited over to our friends Kristen and Ben’s house for dinner. On the menu were fish tacos with mango salsa verde. I’ve never tried fish tacos before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Would it be too “fishy?” Too salty?

When I took my first bite I was in heaven. Not only was the fish excellently cooked but the mango salsa verde added a perfect flavor combination with the old bay seasoning. Thankfully, Kristen shared her recipe with me and my readers!

Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa Verde

YIELD: 2 servings (serving size: 2 filled tacos)
TOTAL:34 Minutes

  • 1/2 cup chopped peeled mango
  • 1/2 cup chopped green tomato
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder

  • 2 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 4 (8-inch) whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 cup mixed salad greens

1. To prepare salsa, combine the first 7 ingredients in a small bowl; toss well.
2. To prepare tacos, preheat broiler.
3. Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle fish evenly with seasoning. Broil 6 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.
4. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat tortillas with cooking spray. Add the tortillas to pan, 1 at a time; cook 1 minute on each side or until lightly toasted.
