Parmesan Crusted Tilapia with Peach Salsa

One way to ring in the warm weather is to spice up a regular fish filet with some fresh salsa! I combined a recipe for tilapia with the peach salsa. James commented that although the parmesan and salsa tastes blended well, there is room for improvement in blending the two flavors. Next time I’d like to try either straight grilling the fish or adding a light breading to add a bit of crunch but doesn’t take away from the salsa. That said, the salsa is excellent. It’s festive, fresh and full of flavor. Enjoy!
