Serves 4 / A fresh, fruity sauce enhances the earthy sweetness of the spiced fish. Prep tips: You can substitute rainbow trout or another white fish. For the sauce, experiment with other fruit combinations, such as raspberries, mangoes, or peaches.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 10-ounce package frozen blackberries, partially thawed
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
⅓ cup dry white wine
Pinch of salt
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cumin
¼-½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
4 5- to 6-ounce tilapia fillets, skin removed, rinsed and patted dry
In a medium saucepan, combine blackberries, honey, vinegar, wine, and a pinch of salt. Mash berries lightly with a fork. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, about 8 minutes, until sauce is slightly thickened.
While sauce cooks, in a small bowl combine ½ teaspoon salt, cinnamon, cumin, cayenne, and black pepper. Gently rub both sides of tilapia fillets with spice mixture.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Sauté fish 2-3 minutes, until golden, then turn and sauté 2-4 minutes longer, until cooked through. Transfer to serving plates and top with blackberry sauce. Serve immediately.
