Tilapia Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa

Back in January I did Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 exercise program and also tried doing her MEAL PLAN that goes along with it on most days. Anyway, this is my VERSION of her Mahi mahi tacos. It's super yummy and tastes so FRESH. It's the perfect spring meal if you ask me!

Tilapia Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa
1/2 to 1 pound tilapia, cut into bite-size chunks
3 tablespoons lime juice
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
Dash of cayenne pepper

Mango Avocado Salsa
1 ripe mango, cut into pieces
1 small avocado, cut into pieces
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup chopped cilantro leaves
1/3 to 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon orange juice

Place the fish in a bowl and then combine the lime juice, orange juice, garlic, and seasonings and pour over fish. Let marinate about 15 minutes.

While fish is marinating, combine salsa ingredients in a bowl and set aside. (Make sure to toss well so the avocado doesn't brown!)

In a frying pan, cook the fish in about 1 teaspoon olive oil and the marinade until completely cooked through and opaque, about 4 or 5 minutes. Serve fish on flour tortillas topped with the mango salsa.

TIP: Another nice addition for serving . . . plain greek yogurt! Try it instead of sour cream for a more tangy taste. Shredded lettuce would also be a great addition.
