Grilled Tilapia with Avocado Salsa

I needed this meal! I eat a lot of leftovers at work (good leftovers, but leftovers nonetheless) but I needed to make something to make my taste buds wake up again!! I found this recipe on Pinterest (link here) and used tilapia because that’s what I had on hand. It made approximately 3 servings. I hope you enjoy it!


1lb Tilapia (this would also be good with chicken breast)

1 tsp EVOO

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp fresh pepper

1 avocado, sliced

1/2 small red onion

1 lime

1-2 tsp finely chopped cilantro (more or less depending on your taste for cilantro)

1/2 tsp salt


1. Chop up avocado, onion and cilantro; mix in a bowl and add lime and salt to taste. Mash up and set aside in the fridge.

2. Mix salt, cumin, paprika, onion powder, chili powder and pepper in a small bowl. Cover tilapia with EVOO and sprinkle spice mix over fish. Cook approximately 2-3 minutes per side (I used a George Foreman Grill) until tilapia is white throughout.

3. Cover tilapia with avocado salsa and a bit of lime zest

Paired with quinoa and Dry Dock Vanilla Porter. So so so good! The red onion added a nice crunch to the meal. I will definitely be pulling this recipe out again soon! Enjoy!!
