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.
Sea Bass with Mango and Black Bean Salsa
- 1 pound sea bass (or other white fish)
- 1 teaspoon oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Lightly oil you broiler pan to prevent the fish from sticking.
- Season the sea bass with the salt and pepper.
- Bake the sea bass in a preheated 450F/230C oven until cooked (no longer opaque), about 10-15 minutes depending on how thick the sea bass is.
Mango and Black Bean Salsa
- 4 small mangos (peeled, stoned and cut into bite sized pieces)
- 1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
- 2 jalapeño peppers (chopped)
- 2 green onions (chopped)
- 1 handful cilantro (chopped)
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 lime (juice)
- Mix everything in a large bowl.

And now on to the mango kick! That looks great. I’ve always been a fan of fruit-based salsas on seafood.
mango & black beans is one of those combinations that seems odd at first, but is really a match made in heaven – yum!
I’ve been trying to cook fish more often and get pretty bored with my dishes. This looks like such a refreshing and easy combination.
That looks delicious! Light, fresh & simple. Nice job Kevin.

This dish looks like something I’d be served in a Carribean resort…catch of the day!
Delicious! I love fresh mango salsa with fish! yummy!
I vote for tacos! Were they as good as the original dish?
Vicki: The taco version was great as well. There is just something about wrapping things in a warm tortilla that makes them better. 🙂
you are torturing me here with these two mango posts! I wish they came at a decent price where I am at. I love fruit salsas and this one looks delicious! oh, and thanks for visiting my blog 🙂
Great recipe! I thought when you said “black beans” you meant Dou See (/Tausi), and I wondered how it would go with mango, haha 🙂 But the dish looks lovely 🙂
What a light and lovely dish! It looks absolutely delicious!

joy to the world for mangoes!

I make a salad just like this on my site, except I add red peppers and corn for more color! This looks delicious and oh so summery.

What a summery looking plate of food, Kevin. It is just bursting with colors.
I love sea bass!
Mango and black bean salsa sounds wonderful with the delicate flavor of the sea bass…and I love how the mango looks a little bigger than what I see on many recipes. Mango is so distinct and different from the black bean, so the contrast is really nice.
This looks like a dish that belongs in a 5 star restaurant. Just beautiful and great job Kevin!
I love mango + black bean dishes. So delicious!
oooh, that mango salsa looks fantastic! mmmm!
I’ve never thought to pair mango and black beans but now I think about it it sounds pretty good; and this meal looks delicious. I’m such a fan of fish!
You’ve gone and done it again Kevin!!
I WANT to eat that NOW!!! Looks really lovely. I have a mango here that I was wondering what to do with….Thanks for the recipe.
