I really enjoy cooking, and I’m always looking for healthy, quick and easy recipes to make when I get home from a tiring day of teaching. I made this tonight for the first time and it is definitely a keeper! The sweetness of the pineapple complemented the fish so nicely. This recipe was perfect for these warm summer days we’ve been having in Indiana lately!
Best of all: it couldn’t have been easier! All I had to do was pop the fish in the oven for fifteen minutes, and while it was baking I chopped up some pineapple, tomatoes, and cilantro for the salsa.
Here’s the recipe:
1 cup diced fresh pineapple
1/3 cup diced Roma tomatoes
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 lb tilapia fillets
1 tbsp. olive oil
Chili powder & garlic powder
1. Drizzle some olive oil into a glass baking pan to thinly coat the bottom. Place the tilapia fillets in the pan. Brush fillets with olive oil, and sprinkle with chili powder and garlic powder to taste. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or so. When the tilapia is done, it should flake easily with a fork.
2. For pineapple salsa: in a medium bowl, combine pineapple, tomatoes, cilantro and lime juice, and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
3. When fish is done, top with pineapple salsa and remaining lime juice, if desired. Viola! An easy, healthy, delicious dinner!
