This cooking light recipe was originally for Red Snapper, but since Tilapia is usually less expensive and easier to find, that is what I go with. This recipe also work wonderfully on the grill.

  1. Prepare the broiler by coating the pan with cooking spray.
  2. Coat the fish fillets completely wih cooking spray.
  3. Combine the cumin salt and pepper and sprinkle all over the fish.
  4. The fillets will cook 5 minutes on each side (watch caefully if your fillets are thin).
  5. While fish broils, combine the remaining ingredients to make the salsa.
  6. Serve the fillets with 1/2 cup of salsa.
  7. When spliting the recipe for 2 I will make the entire salsa portion and freeze it for future use, this recipe is also wonderful with lean pork chops.
