               PAN FRIED TILAPIA                           I serve this dish the sweet grape tomato salsa and corn on the cob

Season both side of your fish with salt, pepper, ground cumin and smoked paprika.  Gently rub the seasoning into the fish, set aside.  Put about 2-3 tablespoons of butter flavored shortening into a saute skillet then heat to medium or until the shortening starts to simmer around 350 degrees.  Add the fish and cook for approximately 5-6 minutes, then flip the fish over and cook on that side for another 5-6 minutes, when the fish is golden brown and firm remove from the skillet.


1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half, 1 cup green seedless grapes, cut in half, 1 cup black seedless grapes cut in half, 1 cup diced papaya, 1/2 cup diced mango, 1/2 cup diced red onions, 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper, 2 garlic cloves, minced, 2 tablespoons diced salerno chili peppers, 2 mint leaves, diced, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, mix well, refrigerate for at least 45-minutes before serving.  Top the fish with this delicious salsa.
