Chipotle Adobo Tilapia

This Blackened Chipotle Tilapia recipe is exactly how it sounds; spicy and delicious.  You get a buttery filet that sears just enough to turn color but leave you with a tender fluffy-flaky fish that just melts in your mouth with every bite. And Thanks to the Adobo Sauce in the is recipe, you get a nice kick too which delivers a little bit of heat that I like to balance out with a mix of Mango, fresh Mint, Pineapple and Red Onion.

Tilapia Mango and Pineapple Mix

One thing that I’ve learned over the years is that fish and fruit is always a good pairing.  P.F. Chang’s uses this Mango mix in their Curry Chicken Salad and it works really well with this too.  So you get the best of both worlds because your tongue gets to dance back and forth between a sweet, minty fruit and a drenched, spicy Chipotle Tilapia.

If you’re interested in more of my favorite fish recipes I would highly recommend my Smothered Salmon and my Grilled Halibut in Lemon Butter.  My Trout Amandine is especially delicious, if you’re into fishing.

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
