Pan Seared Tilapia with Spicy Pineapple Salsa

Monika Rosales


I came up with this recipe, because my family loves tilapia and the fish can be quite bland, so I had all the right ingredients to make it more flavorful.

The Crew and I really liked the flavor and ease of preparing this fish.  The varied ingredients meld extremely well... thanks, in good part, to Monika's wonderful Spicy Pineapple Salsa. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
