Womans Day Seared Tilapia with Pineapple and Cucumber Relish

My oldest son loves fish. Any time that I prepare a fish dish he eagerly eats his serving and then goes around begging for more. I love how easy fish is to prepare and it's a great solution for a busy weeknight meal. Growing up my mom only prepared salmon, which I love, but after moving out on my own I taught myself to appreciate a larger variety of fish. Currently I try to prepare at least one fish dish every week or two. I would prepare fish even more if it was less expensive and I could get my meat eating husband to be convinced that bacon isn't its own food group. As I was looking through the January issue of Woman's Day Magazine I came across a recipe for Seared Tilapia with Pineapple and Cucumber Relish, which looked easy and full of protein.

This recipe has 10 ingredients. It takes 20 minutes of total time, 15 minutes of which is active and makes 4 servings. I actually had to go to multiple stores in order to find non-farm raised tilapia, but I was finally able to find some. I had no problems finding any of the other ingredients and made no modifications. I chose to seed the jalapeno since my five and three-year-old were eating it and they are hit or miss with eating spicy foods. In order for the fish to not stick I used slightly more oil than suggested by the recipe. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.

Fish recipes are great weeknight meals. They save time and are always popular with my children. This recipe has 40 grams of protein and 9 grams of fat per serving and took less than a half an hour to prepare. The relish was delicious, my husband added rice wine vinegar to his dish and thought that it enhanced the flavor even more. Overall, a healthy and easy fish recipe.

  4. That looks pretty awesome. I made Fish and Chips last night using Wild Caught Albacore from Trader Joes (however the potatoes I used (gasp) were conventional)

  6. Hey, nice to see you back! I don't make a lot of fish at home, but I love to order it at restaurants. This recipe looks good though. For some reason, my cooking to myself is never as good as someone else's.

  9. The oil is used in a number of hair and skin care products.
    As an avid tanner who has been on a seemingly life-long quest to find the
    perfect self tanner for my pale skin, I'm very pleased with Mystic
    Tan's UV-free option to getting a real-looking tan. If you have
    really dry skin, I would recommend exfoliating before applying the tan towel.
