Tilapia is a popular dinner ingredient here at Crowded Earth Kitchen. Like most white fish, tilapia is a versatile, mild flavored, low fat protein source. Tilapia is also sustainable and affordable ($5.49 for a two pound package of filets at, you guessed it, Aldi). Today we’re enjoying tilapia with a colorful and delicious peach avocado salsa, just in time for spring.
If you can’t find fresh peaches yet, don’t worry – frozen sliced peaches actually work very well in this salsa. With just a few ingredients, you can prepare this dish in less than 15 minutes. Ready… set… GO!
4 tilapia filets, thawed if previously frozen
1 avocado, diced
1 cup peeled, diced peaches
1 teaspoon finely diced onion
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
mild chili powder to garnish
Step 1) Grease a baking dish lightly with coconut oil. Place tilapia filets on greased baking dish and sprinkle lightly with chili powder. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
Step 2) While fish is baking, gently toss together the avocado, peaches, onion, and lemon juice. Sprinkle lightly with chili powder.
Step 3) Top each baked fish filet with a spoonful of peach avocado salsa. Done!
