Blackened Tilapia With Mango Salsa
another good MH recipe. If you've ever had the Tilapia at Cheeseburger in Paradise it's sort of the same, only better
USE 2 snapper, catfish, or tilapia fillets, 4–5 oz each
PLUS 1 mango (skin and seed removed), cut into cubes
PLUS 1 ripe avocado (skin and pit removed), cut into cubes
PLUS Juice of one lime
PLUS 1 Tbsp blackening spices (we like Zatarain's)
YOU'LL ALSO NEED
1/4 c minced onion
1/2 c chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper
HOW TO MAKE IT
1. Combine the mango, avocado, lime juice, onion, and cilantro in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Preheat a large sauté or grill pan over high heat and add enough oil to coat it.
3. Rub the fillets with enough of the blackening spice to thoroughly cover each side. When the oil is hot (almost smoking), carefully add the fillets to the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until a nice, dark crust has developed. The fish is done when it flakes easily with light pressure from your finger.
4. Top each fillet with the mango salsa.
