Tilapia with Pineapple and Apple Salsa

This is a nutritious and flavorful meal featuring Tilapia fillets and a sweet, yet zesty pineapple-apple salsa, served together with fresh asparagus and long grain brown rice. I like this recipe because it tantalizes my taste buds and is a very healthy meal.



  • 8 Tilapia Fillets, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed pineapple
  • 1 medium apple, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 1 medium mild pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 (7 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 Tbsp. cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. grated lemon peel
  • 1 Tbsp. grated lime peel
  • 1/8 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt


Combine all ingredients, except Tilapia, in a bowl and mix together.

Cover salsa with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for approximately 20 minutes to allow all flavors to mingle.

Place 2 cups of prepared salsa into the bottom of a baking dish and spread evenly.

Place tilapia fillets on top of the salsa bed. Cover the tilapia fillets with remaining salsa.


Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 - 20 minutes, or until tilapia flakes.

Yields 8 (4 oz.) servings.
