This was Bethany’s idea for papalo. This is a variation on a recipe supplied by Sam. Here is the recipe.
Tilapia with Mango Salsa
One Florida mango, diced.
One small sweet onion, thinly sliced.
One diced sweet pepper.
Juice of one lime.
One tablespoon of chopped papalo leaves.
Mix all the ingredients together and set aside for the flavors to blend.
Two tilapia fillets
Juice of one lemon.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Marinade the tilapia in the other ingredients. Heat skillet to medium high add olive oil. Pan fry the tilapia, two minutes on one side, turn it over, add rest of marinade liquid, cover, turn the heat down low and cook for a few minutes (until the fish flakes.)
Place the fish on a serving dish, and top with salsa. It was delicious.
