Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced seeded tomato
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated orange rind

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Preparation

1. Combine first 9 ingredients in a small bowl; toss gently. Cover and chill 1 hour.

2. Sprinkle blackening seasoning on both sides of fish, pressing down firmly to allow seasoning to adhere to fish.
