Grilled White Fish with Strawberry Mango Salsa

I love fish & I love salsa, so this is the perfect recipe for me.  Very quick and tasty. The grilled fish is tasty even without the salsa.  This recipe is a mere 160 calories per serving.

(serves 4)

*3/4 cup fresh strawberries, finely diced
*3/4 cup fresh mangos, finely diced
*1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
*1 teaspoon dried basil
*1 tablespoon, freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1/4 teaspoon black pepper
*4 (4 ounce) fish filets (I use cod or tilapia)
*1 garlic clove, minced
*1/4 cup olive oil
*1 teaspoon dried basil
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon ground pepper
*1 tablespoon, freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
*1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

~In a medium bowl, mix strawberries, mangos, red onion, 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
~Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
~In a large bowl, combine minced garlic, olive oil, 1 teaspoon basil, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, 1 tablespoon lemon juice & parsley.
~Place the fish filets into a zip-loc bag.
~Pour the olive oil mixture over the fish.
~Seal & refrigerate for 1 hour, turning every 15 minutes.
~Preheat grill to high.
~Oil grate.
~Remove fish from marinate, and drain off excess liquid.
~Grill fish 5-6 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
~Remove from heat, plate, and spoon strawberry-mango salsa over fish.
