Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, plus more for grill grates
  • 1/2 pound (2 cups) cherries, pitted
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Prep: 1. Preheat grill to high; lightly oil grates. 2. Pit cherries (we find that using a flat ended chopstick or pastry tip works well to poke the pits out, you can also cut them in half and pop the seed out like you would with a peach). 3. Finely chop red onions and cilantro. 4. De-seed and chop jalapeno 5. Juice lime. Make: 1. In a medium bowl, toss together cherries, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and lime juice. 2. Rub tilapia all over with olive oil; sprinkle with sea salt and pepper to taste. 3. Grill tilapia until opaque about 2 to 3 minutes per side. 4. Serve tilapia topped with cherry salsa.
