Spicy Tilapia with Fresh Pineapple Salsa

This flavors in this meal remind me of vacation.  And while I was just in the Caribbean 2 weeks ago, all this rainy, cold weather makes me feel like it's time to go back!

Spicy Tilapia with Fresh Pineapple Salsa

tilapia
cajun seasoning (Tony's, y'all)
about a half of a fresh pineapple (NOT canned, not ever)
half a small red onion
a bunch of cilantro (I use a lot)
juice of a lime
salt to taste

Chop pineapple, red onion, and cilantro and add lime juice and salt. Salsa is done.

Thaw tilapia and pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Cook in HOT nonstick skillet drizzled with olive oil on one side until it's brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip fish and cook the other side, another 2-3 minutes. Serve with quinoa or rice and pineapple salsa.
