So tonight I went to Fairway to pick up something to make for dinner. I wasn’t in the mood for anything in particular, so I decided to shop what was on sale. Mangos were 3 for $4 and Basa (similar to Tilapia only sweeter) was $5.99 / pound. Here’s what I developed based on those two items…it was just delicious and only $15 for 2 people. Two people can’t eat at Wendy’s for that!


Basa with Mango and Black Bean Salsa

For the Salsa:

1 large mango diced

1/2 red bell pepper diced

1 can of  black beans (rinsed)

1 small Jalapeno diced small (remove seed and ribs for less heat)

3/4 cup of defrosted frozen corn kernels

handful of chopped cilantro

4 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper

Mix all of the above ingredients together in a bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. In the mean time dry off 2 Basa filets. Mix 3 tbsp of flour with salt and pepper. Dredge the fish in the flour (pat off excess) and cook in a little bit of olive oil until the filets are golden brown and opaque on the inside. 

Serve the salsa on top of the fish. Yummy!


Bonus: This is a great recipe to entertain with!

Tip: If you have extra salsa left over, it makes a great snack with blue corn tortilla chips!
