Ingredients

  • 4 tilapia fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • 1 can (15 ounces) mixed tropical fruit, undrained
  • 1/4 cup dried tropical fruit
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red jalapeno pepper jelly
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Hot cooked rice

Directions

  1. Season fillets with jerk seasoning. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook fillets over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, turning once. Transfer to a serving platter and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, combine the fruit, onions, jelly and almonds; heat through. Stir in mint and lime juice. Serve with fish and rice.
