Grilled Tilapia with Orange-Avocado Salsa

Grilled Tilapia with Orange-Avocado Salsa

Hi. It’s me again. And I’m back with math. Delicious math.

Dinner = grilled protein + citrus/avocado salsa.

The markets here are flooded with beautiful Texas citrus – 5 oranges for $1? An 8 lb bag for just under $5? Don’t mind if I do!

We took a few of those Texas oranges, paired them with creamy avocado and some weapons-grade-spicy diced jalapeno (if only there were some way to tell which peppers were “just” hot and which peppers were crazy ^%$#@! hot), and made a sweet+heat salsa to go over a simple citrus-marinated fish.


  • Zest and juice of 1 medium orange
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp chile powder (I used ancho)
  • Small handful of cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 4 tilapia (or your favorite white fish) filets
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 medium oranges
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Handful of cilantro
