  1. For the fish: Cut tilapia into bitesized chunks. Place in a bowl. Add the flour and toss to coat. Add the soy sauce. Let fish marinate for 30 min. Heat oil in heavy, deep skillet and sautee fish until golden, about 4 minutes, turning to brown all sides.

  3. For the salsa: Combine all ingredients and chill until ready to serve.
  4. Serve fish and sauce over rice with the salsa on the side.
