tilapia w/ black bean-corn relish

For some reason, I was craving black beans, corn and avocado this weekend.

And at the supermarket on Saturday, I noticed tilapia was on sale. With fish in hand, I picked up the ingredients for the salsa and headed home to fulfill my craving.

I didn’t have a recipe in hand and was too lazy to look for one, so I made it up. I mixed up acan of low-sodium black beans, some diced cherry tomatoes, half of a chopped avocado and some lime juice, and let it sit while my husband grilled the fish and corn on the cobs. When the corn was cooked, I cut the corn off the cob and mixed it with the black bean-avocado mixture.

The verdict? Relish-topped tilapia + a big salad = a TASTYand SATISFYING hot summer day dinner.
