    Kanzeda's Note:

    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. 1
      Prepare the broiler by coating the pan with cooking spray.

      Combine the cumin salt and pepper and sprinkle all over the fish.
    4. 4
      The fillets will cook 5 minutes on each side (watch caefully if your fillets are thin).
    5. 5
      While fish broils, combine the remaining ingredients to make the salsa.

      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.

      Fast, easy, and very ,very tasty. I had an idea the salsa would be improved if aged overnight in the fridge to allow the flavors to meld. I did this the second batch I made. I think it helped. I like it best served with Key Lime wedges to squeeze generously of the fish. I served it with Arroz Verde, rice cooked with mild green Psailla chiles. The second time with Spanish Rice. Thanx for posting this great recipe. Pierre

      Cook time was spot on. I didn't have fresh cilantro so I used dried. Served with Spanish rice and sauteed broccoli. Delicioso!

      Very, very easy and pretty tasty. It is very filling. I added some lime to it as well. I felt like something was missing, that being said we really did enjoy it.
