I found this recipe in a seafood cookbook years ago, and it’s been one of my favorites. The refreshing, slightly spicy salsa is a delightful complement to the fish. Beth Fleming, Downers Grove, Illinois

The fish goes nicely with this light salsa. I left out the cayenne to make it for my kids. Excellent dish. Grilling the tilapia outside left no fish smell in my house which was a nice bonus.

I love this one. It's simple and light, yet very delicious. Pineapple was on sale at the grocery story yesterday. I immediatly thought of this recipe. I can't use the outside grill now but I broiled the fish in the oven and topped with the salsa and it was just as great as it was in the summer. I served over couscous. Yum!
