Grilled Tilapia Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

P1010523

I was at a loss once again for dinner the other night, so I called upon my ever faithful twitter pals! I needed something fast and that could be prepped ahead and thrown together in about 5 minutes. I ended up with some really good suggestions – pasta with fresh tomato sauce, quesadillas, breakfast for dinner… All great suggestions but then Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod hit me with a wrap and my dinner evolved from there!

We ended up having grilled tilapia in a tortilla with fresh pineapple salsa and it was amazing but it would be excellent with chicken as well. It’s a very versatile salsa and one I will be making again and again!!!

Here I am to formally tell you I want this now (it's morning). The fish has some awesome grill marks and there'a a nice sweet/savory thing going on.

Now, I'm going to "pinch" this.

Judy this really looks tasty and beautiful. I've been experimenting with fruit in salsa for a couple of years now, but have never tried pineapple. Very, very nice.
