Hey it’s Doree here today from Top Notch Mom sharing my Tilapia with Pineapple Avocado Salsa recipe. It’s been a while and I am so happy to be back contributing for Juggling Act Mama. I recently started including at least one seafood dish a week into our menu. I like to keep all my meals quick and easy and this was just perfect for that. What’s great about this recipe is that you can use any type of fish you’d like. If you’re like Ang and not much of a seafood eater, then this salsa is perfect paired with chicken or steak as well.
The pineapple and red onion balance each other out so nicely. Plus the creamy avocado is just so delicious in this salsa. Plus with all this cold weather, it’s nice to have something that reminds me a little of tropical weather! I’ll just close my eyes and pretend I’m eating this pool-side at some fancy Caribbean resort.
Tilapia with Pineapple Avocado Salsa
- 1 lb Fresh Tilapia
- 2 avocados - diced
- 1 can 20 oz pineapple chunks (drained)
- 1 small red onion - chopped
- 1/2 C cilantro - chopped
- 1/4 C lime juice
- 1/4 C lemon juice
- salt and ground pepper
- Arugula for serving
Broil your tilapia 5 minutes a side on a baking sheet covered in foil and sprayed with a non stick cooking spray (you can salt and pepper your tilapia before placing it in the oven, but that's optional)
While your tilapia is cooking start making the salsa
Combine avocados, pineapple chunks, chopped red onion, cilantro and the lemon lime juice mixture and finish with salt and pepper to taste
Once your tilapia is finished you can leave it whole or chop it up into bite size pieces. Serve your tilapia with arugula and topped with the pineapple avocado salsa. Enjoy!
