  • 4 6 ounces mild white fish fillets I used tilapia
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup sliced spanish olives
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 fresh lime juice and zest
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped


  • In a non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. 
  • Season the tilapia and place in the skillet. Saute for 3 minutes and then gently flip. If the fish is not flipping over, allow 1 more minute to cook before flipping.
  • Add in the salsa, green olives, and zest of the lime. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 6-7 minutes or until fish is cooked through. 
  • Finish with the juice of the lime and cilantro.
