    diced mango

    chopped red sweet pepper
  • 1   teaspoon 
    snipped fresh cilantro

    fresh jalapeno chile pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped*
  • 1/2  cup 
    orange juice

Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. For salsa, in a small bowl combine orange pieces, mango, the 3 tablespoons orange juice, the sweet pepper, the 1 teaspoon snipped cilantro, and the chile pepper. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
In a medium nonmetal bowl stir together the 1/2 cup orange juice, the oil, and cayenne pepper. Place fish in the bowl; turn to coat well. Marinate fish in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Drain fish, discarding marinade.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place fish in a small baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Bake about 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve salsa with fish. If desired, garnish with additional fresh cilantro.
  • * Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
