Skinny and Clean-Springtime Tropical Salsa

Oh the benefits of coconut oil!! For someone who does not like coconut flakes (shudder) I am loving cooking with coconut oil and fish, and marrying it with a quick easy tropical salsa.


Ingredients

For the Fish
Tilapia 
Panko Bread Crumbs
Egg Wash
Garlic and Cavenders

For the Salsa
1/2 Red Onion chopped
4 cloves garlic
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 Mango or Pineapple
1/2 tsp red pepper
Directions:
1. Take the tilapia, and using the egg wash dip the fish in and bread it with the panko breadcrumbs which has been flavored with garlic powder and cavenders or any other spices you love. Set aside.

2. Combine all ingredients in your food processor or Ninja and pulse until it is of salsa consistency. 

3. Using coconut oil as our oil of choice, cook the fish in a frying pan over medium heat until it is flaky. At the last minute add a couple of tablespoons of your salsa.

4. While the fish is cooking, make a serving of rice (I like Success 10 minute, boil in the bag...so easy)
5. Combine the rice with the salsa and serve immediately

You know what makes this recipe complete? A wonderful bottle of wine! One of my new favorites is Once Upon A Vine Sauvignon Blanc and this would make a great match for this tropical dish. It is cool and crisp and a great way to bring in Spring! This wine is part of a family of wines from The Wine Bar. Their website is a great tool to help you pair some great wines with recipes.
