Description

Easy spicy tilapia fillets with a homemade strawberry salsa!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE FISH:
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 6 dashes Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Cumin
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Pressed
  • 6 whole Tilapia Fillets, About 4 Oz. Each
  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced
  • FOR THE SALSA:
  • 16 ounces, weight Fresh Strawberries, Hulled, Diced Small
  • 1 whole Green Pepper, Seeded, Diced Small
  • 2 whole Jalapeno Peppers, Seeded, Diced Small
  • 1 whole Small Red Onion, Diced
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  • 3 dashes Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced
  • ½ cups Fresh Cilantro, Snipped

Preparation

Mix together all ingredients for the salsa in a large bowl (make sure to dice everything small)! Refrigerate until ready to use.

For the fish: In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, salt, black pepper, cumin and cayenne. Set aside.

In a large skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Once hot add pressed garlic and saute for about 2 minutes. Lay fish in pan and sprinkle with half of the seasoning. Cook about 4-5 minutes. Flip fish over and sprinkle with remaining seasoning and drizzle with lime juice. Cook an additional 4-5 minutes, until fish is fully cooked and flakes with a fork.

Serve immediately with strawberry salsa. I like to pair this with my cilantro-lime rice. Enjoy!

Loved this! I converted this idea into fish tacos with a cilantro slaw on top – so good! Thanks for such a great idea.
