Grilled Tilapia with Avocado Salsa


I have been on such an avocado kick recently. Seriously, I average a whole bag of Trader Joe’s avocados a week these days. Here is one of my most recent avocado topped creations that I’ve been serving weekly…

Ingredients:

1
lb tilapia

1
tbs olive oil

1
tsp salt

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2
tsp ground cumin

1/2
tsp onion powder

1/2
tsp black pepper

1 cup rice

1 can black beans {15 oz}

1 can corn {11 oz}

Avocado
salsa

1
avocado, peeled, seeded and sliced

1
small red onion, sliced

Juice
from 2 limes

3
tbs olive oil

2
tbs finely chopped cilantro

Salt
to taste

Directions: 

1. Prepare
rice as directed.
 

2. Mix
the salt, chili powder, cumin, onion powder and black pepper together, rub
the tilapia fillets with olive oil and this seasoning mix, and refrigerate
for at least 30 minutes.
 

3. Pre-heat
the grill.
 

4. Combine
the avocado, onion, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil and salt in a bowl and
mix well, chill until ready to use.
 

5. In
a medium sauce pan, combine black beans and corn. Heat over medium.
 

6. Grill
the tilapia to desired doneness.
 

7. On
a bed of rice, layer corn and bean mix, top with avocado salsa.
