Found this one at My Recipes. I'm always a little leery about trying to prepare fish, but this turned out pretty good.
I especially loved this relish made with fresh pineapple, tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. I thought it went perfect with the fish. The fish was a little spicy (as the title suggests) but my son just loved it too.
Here are the how to's:
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 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
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 received a nice surprise from the people at Quorn this week. It's a way cool measuring spoon with 3 sides with a different measurement on each side. Nice way to have less clutter in your kitchen drawer.
Not that I would know what that's about.
And lastly, a new family member arrived at our house today. A lime tree! I'm awfully excited, I think I'm going to call him baby limey. But that would be stupid, so I'm just going to call it a tree. I have no idea how long it takes to bear fruit. But I'll be dreaming of lime pies and possibly margaritas until then!
