Citrus Tilapia with Fruit Salsa

Another recipe from Diabetic living magazine.

2 Fresh or Frozen Tilapia fillets (8 oz total)
1 medium orange, peeled, sectioned and cut into pieces
1/2 cup diced mango
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons chopped red sweet pepper
1 tablespoon snipped fresh cilantro
1 fresh jalapeno chile pepper, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. For salsa, in a bowl combine orange, mango, the 3 tablespoons orange juice, the sweet pepper, cilantro and jalapeno. Cover and chill until ready to serve over fish.

2. In a medium non-metal bowl stir together the 1/2 cup orange  juice, the oil and cayenne pepper. Place fish in the bowl; turn to coat well.  Marinate fish in the refrigerator 30 minutes. Drain fish, discarding marinade.

3. Preheat over to 350. Place fish in a small baking dish (spray with pam).  Sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Bake for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.  Spoon salsa over fish. If desired, garnish with additional fresh cilantro sprigs.
