Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Tilapia with Mango Salsa
Every Wednesday the boys and I have about 30 minutes to "kill" between school pick up time and when I need to drop Thomas off at a different school for a club he's in. 
We use this time to go Krogering.
The boys like to grocery shop, especially when they take off like a scavenger hunt getting items we need, and when they get to pick out a snack.  And their favorite cereals.  And snacks for home.
Brennan has also found the free samples at the fish counter.  I had NO IDEA they gave out free samples at the fish counter, but Brennan's met all the "fishermen" and he checks out their offerings each week.
He also found the seafood/fish recipe kiosk at Kroger, and regularly brings me a new recipe card to try out.  This past week's was Tilapia with Mango Salsa.
Tip #1 - get the ripest mango you can find.
There apparently aren't any ripe mangoes in Southern Indiana right now, and I was making the dish that night, so we had tart mango.  Ripe would have been much nicer.
The fish dish is easy to make. 
Season your fillets with lime juice, chopped garlic and black pepper, and cook for 12 minutes at 350* until flaky.
While the fish is cooking, mix up your salsa - chopped mango, chopped fresh cilantro, diced red onion, lime juice, and hot sauce. 

Spoon over the cooked fish and serve.

Except for the tartness of the unripe mango - a hit at our house!
