  • 6 tilapia filets
  • 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning (or to taste)*
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen corn (4 ears)**

  • about 1/4 of a red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 and 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled


  1. Heat grill to high heat.
  2. Pat the tilapia filets dry with paper towels and sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Use your fingers to rub it on both sides.
  3. Oil the grill. Add the tilapia filets and cook for about 3 minutes per side or until it flakes with a fork.
  4. In a medium bowl stir together oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add corn, cucumber, jalapeño, red onion, cilantro, and cherry tomatoes. Toss to coat.
  5. Serve the tilapia with the corn salsa. Top with feta cheese, or you can add it to the salsa.
  6. If you don't have a grill you can broil the tilapia. Line a baking sheet with foil and grease well. Add the prepared tilapia and broil under low heat for 5-8 minutes or until it flakes with a fork.
