Recipe Monday

You can make so many different flavors with your salsa by using different ingredients. I used peaches in this dish to lighten it up a bit and give it some sweetness. Of course, I also used them because they're incredibly delicious. 

Ingredients

Dice up 1/2 cup of red onion. 

Dice up 2 cups of peaches (which was two small peaches for me). Try to get really ripe peaches because they'll be the juiciest and all that awesome flavor can soak into the other ingredients. 

Dice up about 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro. You can adjust this to your personal taste. I love cilantro, so I'm always fine with having plenty of it in dishes like this.

Place all of your ingredients in a small bowl. Squeeze the juice from 1/2 of a lime onto the other ingredients. 

Stir that up until it is all combined. Set it in the fridge so that the flavors can blend together a little more. 

Then I decided to make some tilapia to go with this salsa. Place 2 fresh/thawed fillets onto a baking sheet (this recipe does make enough salsa to actually top about 6 fillets).

Then sprinkle some chili powder across the top of each fillet. I wanted to add cayenne honestly, but didn't have any on hand. Then you bake the fish in an oven set to 425°F for approx. 10 minutes or until white and flaky. 

Then serve up your cooked tilapia and top it with some of this yummy peach salsa. I also served this with a small side of rice. It was a delicious meal that is perfect for summer. 

The tilapia is just a suggestion on what to pair with this salsa. You could also put it with chicken, black beans, rice, quinoa, or eat it by itself! I just think that the flavor of this really compliments a light fish like tilapia. Hope you'll give this a try sometime!

Until next time.
