  • I love this recipe! I actually make my own salsa using fresh corn, sliced grape tomatoes, avocado, green onion, limejuice, salt and pepper and a dash of grapeseed oil! I served it with roasted red potatoes! Very delish! - 3/6/09

  • Made this tonight with red skinned garlic mashed potatoes and steamed green beans. Comes together very quickly and is a nice use of tilapia. The CL recipe includes a tomatilla salsa which is great with it and doesn't increase the cal count by much. - 2/10/09
