A Pampered Chef recipe that utilizes packaged taco seasoning for the fish and a simple pineapple salsa or pico de gallo. You could substitute any other fish that holds together well when grilling.
- Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat 5 minutes. As pan heats, peel pineapple half; cut lengthwise into two pieces and remove core. Slice each pineapple piece lengthwise into three strips. Arrange strips in a single layer over grill pan; cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear. Set aside. While pineapple cooks, chop onion and cut pepper in half lengthwise -- remove and discard seeds. Chop chile and cilantro. Combine onion, pepper, cilantro and salt in a small bowl. Zest the lime to measure 1 teaspoons zest and juice lime to measure 1 tablespoons juice. Add both to onion mixture; mix well.
- Whisk 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.
- As tilapia cooks, chop pineapple and add to onion mixture; mix well. Top tilapia with pineapple salsa.
This tilapia recipe is tasty, summer dish. The taco seasoning and oil made a beautiful glaze on the tilapia. The salsa added a sweet heat. These flavors were fantastic together.
