Grilled Tilapia with Cherry Salsa

Source: Everyday Food, June 2008


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for grill grates
  • 1/2 pound (2 cups) Bing cherries, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chile (ribs and seeds removed), minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 4 tilapia fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)


  1. Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. In a medium bowl, combine cherries, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine; set salsa aside.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together coriander, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Rub tilapia all over with oil; sprinkle with spice mixture.

  3. Grill tilapia until opaque around the edges and underside loosens easily from grill, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a metal spatula with a thin blade, flip fish; continue to cook until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve tilapia topped with cherry salsa.
