    Method
    Prep:45min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:1hr marinating  ›  Ready in:1hr55min 

    1. Whisk together the extra-virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, parsley, garlic, basil, 1 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the tilapia fillets, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
    2. Prepare the mango salsa by combining the mango, red pepper, red onion, coriander and chilli in a bowl. Add the lime juice and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and toss well. Season with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    3. Preheat barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil cooking grate.
    4. Remove the tilapia from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Grill the fillets until the fish is no longer translucent in the centre and flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Serve the tilapia topped with mango salsa.

    This was delicous! I started marinading the fish just a couple hours ahead of time. Then I put the two fillets in a 9x9 pan, drizzled most of the marinade over the top, and then baked it in the oven (covered) at 350 for 15 minutes, and then I uncovered it and baked it at 375 until it was done (probably another 10 minutes, I didn't set the timer). The salsa is great, too. It really makes enough for about 4+ fillets, but I enjoyed the leftovers with chips, so I don't know that I would ever cut the salsa recipe in half. I paired this with some coconut rice and asparagus. I'll definately make this again.  -  09 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Great Recipe! I was in a hurry so I pulled out my George Foreman. I set the temp @ 300 & grilled the Tilapia Fillets for 9 minutes. They turned out great! The Mango Salsa adds just the right touch.  -  02 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Yummy! A little messy but worth it. I used JDPOP's advice and accompanied this with the Herbed Rice and Black Beans. Great meal.  -  30 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
