"it looks so delicious i will try it"
"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 made tilapia dish for my family last night and they loved it."
"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!"
