Cajun Tilapia with Mango Salsa Recipe

Cajun Tilapia with Magno Salsa Recipe Yield: 4 Servings Cajun seasoned tilapia with a sweet mango and spicy mango salsa.


Units Scale
  • 4 4 oz Tilapia Fillets
  • 1/2 cup King Arthur All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/8 cup Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 Ripe Mangos
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 4oz can Diced Jalapenos
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 Teaspoon Organic Pure Cane Sugar
  • If Mango Not Sweet


  1. Dice your mangoes into small pieces and place in a large bowl. If mangoes do not taste sweet, mix with a teaspoon of sugar.
  2. Once the salsa is chilled, combine flour and Cajun seasoning in a bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add peppers, jalapenos (whole can), and onions to mango bowls.
  4. Mix in lemon juice and cilantro. Mix well.
  5. Cover dish with salsa and place in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours before serving. The longer it sits, the more spicy the salsa will be on your fish. Always serve salsa cold.
  6. Rinse and clean your tilapia in cold water, and then pat dry with a paper towel. I usually use frozen tilapia.
  7. Coat both sides of the tilapia with your flour and seasoning mix. Set aside.
  8. In a large frying pan or skillet, start melting the butter on medium heat. Butter should be melted and coat the bottom of your pan or skillet.
  9. Place fish in the pan. Fish should cook for four minutes on each side.
  10. Move tilapia to a plate and serve with mango salsa on top of the fish.
