When I picked up the mangos on the weekend I remembered having seen some recipes for fish with mango salsa that sounded simple and good. I made sure to stop by the fish monger and I decided to try a new fish that I had been wanting to try for a while, sea bass. From what I could gather sea bass was a white fish similar to halibut and I thought that it would work with a mango salsa. Searching through my bookmarks I found a recipe for roasted tilapia with mango and black bean salsa. The black bean and mango salsa sounded fresh, healthy and tasty. This meal was really really easy to make. You just bake some fish and chop some mangos and peppers. What's more is that it was really good! The sea bass was pretty similar to halibut and it was nice and moist and tender and flaky. The salsa was an amazing combination of sweet and hot and the black beans added a nice creaminess. I flaked the leftover sea bass and used it and the leftover salsa to make fish tacos.
