This tilapia is so good. The pineapple salsa on top is just the right amount of sweet and spicy and it is such a nice light summer dish. It was pretty quick and easy to do and very tasty. Both my husband and I really liked this one. The recipe was taken from this Pampered Chef book and tweaked slightly. And I promise it tasted way better than it looks, but I wanted to add the picture anyway.
