Ingredients

1 pkg
taco seasoning (1 1/4 oz)
3 Tbsp
garlic oil (or olive oil)
4
boneless, skinless tilapia fillet (about 4.25 oz. each)

PINEAPPLE SALSA

1/2 medium
pineapple
1/4 small
red onion
1
serrano pepper (or jalapeno if you wish to have less heat)
2 Tbsp
fresh cilantro
1/8 tsp
salt
1
lime, zested and juiced

Step-By-Step

1Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. As pan heats, peel pineapple half; cut lengthwise into two pieces and remove core. Slice each pineapple piece lengthwise into strips. Arrange strips in a single layer over grill pan; cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear. Set aside.

2While pineapple cooks, chop onion and cut pepper in half lengthwise, removing and discarding seeds. Chop chile and cilantro. Combine onion, pepper, cilantro and salt in a small bowl. Zest the lime to measure 1 tsp. zest and juice lime to measure 1 tbsp. juice. Add both to onion mixture and mix well.

3Whisk taco seasoning mix and oil in a bowl. Add tilapia; turn to coat. Place two tilapia fillets on grill pan. Cook 2 minutes or until grill marks appear. Turn tilapia over; cook 2 minutes or until tilapia flakes easily with a fork. Remove tilapia from pan. Wipe out pan and repeat with remaining fillets.

4As tilapia cooks, chop pineapple and add to onion mixture; mix well. Top tilapia with pineapple salsa.
