Broiled Tilapia (recipe below) is a great dinner entrée served with fruit salsa, a tossed salad and fresh bread. Broiling is a quick way to prepare this fish. And for added simplicity, purchase fruit salsa at the market or if you have the time, make your own with the recipe below:
Rinse tilapia and pat dry. Place tilapia in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil 6 inches from heat until fish is opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve while hot.
Fresh Fruit Salsa:
- 1 cup of diced fruit (pineapple, grapes, mango, papaya, or peaches)
- 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
- 1 Tbsp chopped jalepeno or a sprinkle of red pepper flakes (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Serve fruit salsa on the side or spoon over the fish fillets.
