So this weekend i did some spring cleaning. After cleaning out my freezer i saw which meats i had (that were still good) and planned my meals around them for the week(rather then buying more meat). Plus since i dusted off my cooking light cookbook i thought this was the perfect opportunity to try something new, healthy, and yummy! This is what i found for my Tilapia...now Chris wasn't a huge fan of the Relish... to "different" for him but I LOVE IT! I was eatting spoonfuls of the stuff... but i also felt the peppers baking my insides for the rest of the night but it was still SOOOO good! It was fresh, spicy, and filling! Yield Ingredients 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, about 1/2 cup relish, and 1 lime wedge) Ingredients
* 2 teaspoons canola oil (i didn't have any so i used EVOO) * 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning * 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt * 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper * 4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets * 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh pineapple chunks * 1/3 cup chopped onion * 1/3 cup chopped plum tomato * 2 tablespoons rice vinegar * 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro * 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped * 4 lime wedges Preparation
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle fish evenly with spice mixture. Add fish to pan, and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
Combine pineapple and next 5 ingredients (through jalapeño) in a large bowl, stirring gently. Serve pineapple mixture with fish. Garnish with lime wedges.
I'm southern, I live in the north (you'll never convince me MD is not the north) and I'm slightly sarcastic, sorry it just happens, like poop happens, my sarcasm happens too~
I LOVE my husband, my daughter, and my dogs, and I’m a Christian, though not always the best example. I try to do it all, but know i can't alone. I brighten my journey with a few bows, sparkles, monograms, and heels. This is how I brought my southern roots to the north!
