Tilipia with Pineapple Mango Salsa...

I like to pretend I can cook. (Pretend being the key word there). When I find easy recipes, I refer to them a lot. I have a handful of recipes that seem more complicated, but are really easy, like embarrassingly easy.

One of those recipes is Tilapia with Pineapple Mango Salsa.

and oh so easy

All the ingredients you need for the salsa:

Red Onion
Pineapple (fresh or canned)

Chop up your cilantro.
I don't measure anything in this recipe. Normally I have to have the exact measurements for everything. Not this time..trial and error and make to your liking...

Chop up your red onion. I'm not a huge fan of onions so I don't use a whole onion most of the time. I also like to make the pieces smaller so they aren't completely over powering.

Chop up your pineapple. You can use canned or fresh pineapple. In my opinion, canned is better. It's easier than cutting up a whole pineapple. If you have the time and patience, fresh is good too.

I make my husband peel and cut up the mango. For some reason, the mango and I don't get along. I usually use two mango since they don't have a very powerful taste.

Slice up your tomatoes...for some reason, I didn't take a picture of that step, but I'm sure you get it..

Mix everything together and squeeze a lime over all over it. If you are wimp like me, you have to use two hands to squeeze half a lime. (time to hit the gym)

I think it's fine without salt, but my husband has to put salt on everything...

Put the salsa in the fridge for awhile to let it sit.

When you are ready to finish making the meal, cook your fish in a bit of Olive Oil.
I usually just use salt and pepper to season the fish.
You don't want a lot of seasoning because of the salsa.

And Wham!!

Finished Product...
I usually serve this dish with rice.

There is always salsa left over and it is delish with chips. I usually add a jalapeno to the salsa when we eat it that way. Oh so yummy!!
