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.
