This light, white fish is marinated with olive oil and lime juice and then pan-fried with tomatoes, jalapenos and cilantro until just done. It's quick, easy, and amazing!

Yum! This was fast, easy and very good. My hubby kept raving. Didn't have fresh jalapenos on hand so I subbed 1 can of Rotel tomatoes with chilis drained and 1 large fresh tomato. It would be even better with all fresh ingredients. Served with cilantro brown rice, white corn and a southwestern salad.

I modified it for the grill, and it was really really good!! I also added in more vegetables that I like. It was very spicy also, so I wouldn't necessarily feed this to kids.

My family did not like this dish at all. Followed the recipe exactly. They love the broiled parmesan tilapia recipe from here so guess I will stick with it!
