This tropical meal will make you feel like you’re on an island! The Cajun-seasoned fish brings a tiny bit of heat, which pairs perfectly with the sweet and citrusy mango salsa.

Nutrition Facts: 210 calories / 17.5g carbs / 21g protein / 6.5g fat
- 1 pound (448g) tilapia (portioned into 4, 4-ounce filets)
- 1 tablespoon (15g) fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
- 1 ½ cups (200g) mango (cut into ¼ inch cubes)
- 1 cup (138g) red bell peppers (diced)
- ½ cup (50g) avocado (diced)
- ⅓ cup (29g) red onion (diced)
- 3 tablespoons fresh chopped mint leaves
- 2 tablespoon (31g) fresh lime juice
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Optional toppings: additional chopped mint, lime wedge for squeezing
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Place tilapia filets on a nonstick baking sheet, evenly pour 1 tablespoon lime juice over filets. Sprinkle Cajun seasoning evenly over fish. Bake for 10 minutes, until fish easily flakes with a fork.
- While the fish is cooking, make the salsa. Combine mango, red pepper, avocado, onion, and mint in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice, olive oil, and honey. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over salsa and toss until all ingredients are evenly coated.
- When fish is cooked, serve each filet topped with salsa. Garnish with additional mint or a lime wedge (macros will vary).
- If a spicier flavored fish is desired, increase the Cajun seasoning. This will not change the macros.
- For easy clean-up, line the baking sheet with parchment paper before baking the fish.
- Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Enjoy the leftover fish cold as it does not reheat well.
