Cheers to Cheeries!

I have been a bit obsessed with cherries lately! They are absolutely delicious and I saw this tilipia recipe with cherry salsa which looked yummy! The perfect combination of sweet and savory and the cherry on top (ha) is that it's a super healthy guilt-free dish! enjoy

For the salsa
2 cups sweet cherries, pitted and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeño, seeds removed, minced
1 tablespoon fresh lime juicesalt and fresh ground black pepper

For the tilapia
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
4 tilapia fillets (about 4 to 6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon olive oil

Preheat grill with grates that have been lightly oiled.

To prepare the salsa
In a medium bowl, toss together cherries, onion, cilantro, jalapeño and lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

To prepare the tilapia
In a small bowl, whisk together salt, pepper and coriander. Drizzle the oil over the fillets and rub to coat. Sprinkle each piece with the spice mixture. Place fillets on the grill and cook until fish is opaque throughout, carefully flipping each piece halfway through, about 2 minutes per side. Serve fish topped with salsa.

Makes 4 servings.
