A recipe. Because it’s what we’re having for dinner tonight.
Tilapia with Fruit Salsa
About 1 cup fresh pineapple, finely chopped
1/2 medium red onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 nectarine (or other fruit of your choice), finely chopped
1/4 cup cilantro or parsley, finely minced
salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste
2 tilapia fillets
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
dash of salt
freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
dash of cayenne, to taste
1 tsp butter
Mix fruit salsa ingredients and set aside.
In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Put onion powder, garlic powder, cajun seasoning, salt, pepper, and cayenne on a plate and mix. Dredge fish in spice mixture. Cook in pan until done, about 3 minutes per side. Top with fruit salsa. Serves 2.
This is super-fast, healthy, and tasty. I usually serve it with couscous and a vegetable like asparagus or broccoli.
