Ingredients
  

  • 2 tilapia fillets
  • 1 tablespoon Mazola Corn Oil
  • Salt pepper and paprika to taste

Pineapple Mango Salsa:

  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper stemmed and seeded
  • juice of one large lime
  • salt to taste

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the salsa: In a medium bowl, combine pineapple, mango, red onion, jalapeno, and lime juice. Stir until well combined. Season with salt, to taste. Chill until ready to serve.
  • Prepare the fish: Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
  • Brush both sides of tilapia filet with Mazola Corn Oil to prevent sticking and enhance flavor. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika to taste.
  • Grill the fillets 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets, until the fish is no longer translucent in the center, and flakes easily with a fork. Serve the tilapia topped with pineapple mango salsa.
