Spicy Tilapia with Pineapple Relish

  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
  • 4 (6-oz.) tilapia fillets
  • 1 1/2 c. chopped fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1/3 c. chopped onion
  • 1/3 c. chopped plum tomato
  • 2 T. rice vinegar
  • 1 T. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 4 lime wedges

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine the Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle the fish evenly with the spice mixture. Add the fish to the pan, and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Combine the pineapple and next 5 ingredients (through jalapeño) in a large bowl, stirring gently. Serve the pineapple mixture with the fish. Garnish with the lime wedges.
