Tilapia with Fresh Cilantro Lime Tomato Salsa
4 Tilapia filets
1 medium tomato, diced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Juice and zest of 1 lime
Salt to taste
1 small jalapeno, seeded and diced (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Spray baking dish with cooking oil. Place tilapia in dish and lightly spray the top of the fish (this helps keep it moist). Salt and pepper to taste. Cover with foil and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish is white and flaky.
While fish is cooking, make salsa by combining remaining ingredients. You can use salsa immediately or make a day ahead to deepen flavors.
Remove fish and transfer to plate. Spoon salsa over fish and serve.
