This is a yummy, low-fat fish recipe. Perfect for summer! The recipe is for 2 people, but it could easily be doubled or halved.
* NOTE: Even though the ingredients and directions for the mango salsa, rice and vegetable medley are listed after the tilapia, I recommend prepping them first so they are ready to go!
