Tilapia Sammie with Mango Salsa

Ingredients (1 serving)
2 (6-ounce) tilapia filets
⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
½ teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Mango salsa (recipe follows)
Mango Salsa:
1½ cups fresh mango, diced
½ cup red bell pepper, chopped
¼ cup red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons lime juice
Salt, to taste


  1. Make the mango salsa. In a medium bowl, combine mango, bell pepper, onion, cilantro, jalapeño and lime juice. Mix well. Season with salt, and transfer to refrigerator while tilapia cooks.
  2. Place tilapia filets in a large resealable plastic bag. Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, basil, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and pour into bag over tilapia filets. Seal the bag, being careful to remove excess air, and transfer to refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grate. Remove tilapia from marinade and grill until the center is no longer translucent and fish flakes easily with a fork (approximately 3-4 minutes per side). Serve atop roll with mango salsa.
