I’m always on the hunt for quick and tasty recipes, especially when cooking lunch at home for myself, and frequently turn to tilapia. I buy a big bag of filets and keep them around to either grill or bake. I love seafood, it’s good for me, it’s easy and fast to cook, and tilapia works with a number of flavors.

These week I’ve been on an avocado salsa kick. I threw it together on a whim and think it will be repeated often! It works great as a midnight snack for insomniacs like myself. My ingredient measurements aren’t specific, and they’re definitely not static. I’m not really one for measuring unless I’m baking–I just taste everything as I go along!

Grilled Tilapia with Avocado Salsa
Serves two

2-3 tilapia filets
Tony Chachere’s Seasoning

Lightly season filets with Tony Chachere’s or preferred seasoning. Cook in cast-iron skillet over heat, or in a George Foreman grill until they easily flake with a fork.

1 avocado
½-1 roma tomato
¼-½ white or red onion, chopped
¼-½ corn (I heated up frozen corn)
1-2 Tbs olive oil
2-3 Tbs parsley, chopped
Salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon, to taste

Chop avocado, tomato, and red onion. Stir all ingredients together. Chill in refrigerator if desired. Enjoy!
