LOVE this Lime Olive Oil (ok.. not in the recipe but seemed appropriate) and our favorite orange mango juice v. just orange juice

Marinade for the tilapia: Lime olive oil, orange mango juice, lime juice, garlic, and fresh cilantro (and no sugar because I was using bottled juice)

Let the fish marinate while the rice cooked (about 20 minutes)

For the rice: store-made hot Pico de Gallo and chunks of fresh pineapple

Cooked long-grain white rice mixed with the pico de gallo, chopped pineapple, and drained & rinsed black beans…

Topped with the marinated tilapia and then drizzled the marinade over the fish and rice

Plated with some extra pineapple on the side??? there was a sprinkling of fresh cilantro too (missed that picture) – This was a lovely, light, fresh dinner – totally easy to do for two but, I’m sure, also easy to do for more??? We are thinking it might be good for a Sunday Roast, especially on a hot summer day.
