Steamed Cayenne Rubbed Tilapia with a Mango, Corn & Plum Salsa

Posted: 2011/07/16 in fruit, seafood

Yum. I love fresh chunky salsas, but all the cutting and dicing makes it super prohibitive to make at least for a lazy bum like me. I would buy the canned stuff, but well it tastes … canned, its just not the same. Sigh. Thus I’m forced to make my own. Generally when I do make salsas they’ve been pretty good, though there have been a few notable exceptions… but thats beside the point. I just got myself a new Tatung steam cooker (if you don’t know what it is click here or visit some traditional Taiwanese persons house) and I wanted to test out its steaming capabilities. I had a bunch of Tilapia fillets in the freezer so I just took one out and plopped it on a plate to steam. Tossed together a fruity salsa and presto dinner was done. This probably would have tasted better in taco form, but alas no tortillas or tortilla chips.
