Crispy Tilapia with Pico de Gallo


Chop the tomatoes and onions and add to a bowl along with the cilantro, finely chopped. Add a few healthy pinches of salt, black pepper, the garlic, and the juice of one lime. Add a touch of olive oil, no more than one tablespoon, and taste. Adjust for seasoning and allow to sit for at least 15 minutes, preferably longer for the flavors to marinate.

Heat two large nonstick skillets (or one, and cook in batches) over medium-high heat with enough olive oil to cover the bottom. When the oil is almost smoking, lay the fillet in the oil to coat, then turn over to cook opposite side.

Cook, without touching, for one to two minutes per side, depending on thickness. Remove from the heat and plate, topping with the pico de gallo. Squeeze a little lime juice, crack fresh pepper, and serve.

SOOOO tasty! This has become a regular in our summer rotation. I use jarred salsa if I'm in a rush....
