Chili Honey Tilapia Salad & Dressing

Aside from salmon being my favorite fish to eat, I’d say tilapia is my second favorite. Why? Well, just like salmon, you can serve it with just about anything.

I am always coming up with new ideas on how to serve it. Two great things about tilapia is that it cooks in just about 7 minutes tops and it’s an affordable fish!

This week I made chili honey tilapia salad & dressing.
