Grilled Tilapia and Mango Salsa

Grilled Tilapia and Mango Salsa This is my boyfriend’s absolute favourite meal. It is very easy to prepare, and goes great on top of lemon basmati rice. I like to present it by placing the tilapia on top of lemon basmati rice, with the mango salsa spread over top of the fish.
