Tilapia with Cucumber Relish Recipe

Publisher Photo
In Wyandotte, Michigan, Mary VanHollebeke found a recipe that lures even landlubbers to her fish suppers. "I spotted this easy entree on a recipe card in my local fish market," she reports. "Although my husband isn't big on fish, he enjoys this mild-tasting tilapia." The relish adds garden-fresh flavor and pretty color to the lightly browned fillets.
