Mango Tilapia Salad

I found this recipe a few weeks ago and decided to put it on my dinner list. It seemed to take forever to get around to but I finally did.
I tweaked it for our personal preferences and it was DELICIOUS!!! Sorry no process pictures this time.

Tortilla Crusted Tilapia:

4 tilapia filets
4 cups crushed tortilla chips
1 TB lime juice
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1 small red bell pepper, seeded

1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic salt(or to taste)

1 egg
2 TB sour cream

Grease a baking sheet and preheat the oven to 400

In a blender combine chips, juice, cilantro, bell pepper, and seasonings and blend until it is coarse crumbs.

Pour into a wide dish.

Combine the egg and sour cream and beat well.

Dip each filet into the egg mixture, then into the tortilla mixture, pressing to make it adhere well.

Place on greased sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until an internal temp of 145.

While the fish is cooking make the Mango Mixture

1 cup mango, diced
1 cup  pineapple, diced
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, diced
1/2 cup pickled banana peppers(drained)
1/4 cup red onion, minced
1 cup creamy poppy seed dressing(we used Marie's All Natural, but I included a homemade version at the bottom)
(if you want a kick, add in some minced jalapeno too!)

Combine all and allow to mingle for a few minutes.

Place a handful of greens of your choice on a plate. Place Tilapia Filet on that , then top with mango mixture and a sprinkle of oregano!

Poppy Seed Dressing:
1/4 c cider vinegar
1/2 c non fat greek yogurt
2 TB canola oil
1/2 c sugar
1 TB minced onion
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1 TB lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1 TB poppy seeds

Combine all and mix well, allow to mingle at least an hour.
