Guess what? I have a recipe for you today! It is one of my favorites, and even though I am in the midst of studying hard, I had this for my birthday dinner at home last weekend. That meant that I had my family make this for me, so it was even easier to cook than usual. :) But really, this is a super simple dish and perfect to take advantage of all of the wonderful produce that I mentioned here on my trip to the new Walmart Neighborhood Market. Not only is it easy to cook, it looks beautiful and is perfect for a dinner party or a light summer lunch.
I started with a recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks and tweaked it over the years to fit me. For one thing, I use tilapia, which is a flavorful, budget-friendly fish that you can find easily in the fresh or frozen section. Also, I substituted some of the herbs since we have some cilantro-senstive people in the family. Lastly, the original recipe made a pretty small amount of the salsa, but it is so delicious, I find that it ends up being eaten with many more items than just the fish!
Have I whet your appetite enough? Let's get cooking!!!

By the way, they also made a Carrot & Jicama Salad, which I will definitely share soon. So that is three of the four items that I used in my Kitchen Basics post on one plate. Yum!
