As you know, I am in Wisconsin for work.  Yesterday, I overheard some of my cube-mates discussing tilapia and how they don’t know what to do with it.  I told them about this recipe and thought I would reshare it with you all!  Tilapia with Olive Salsa tastes so heavenly, you will forget you are eating healthy.  You can have it on the table in less than 20 minutes, yet it is fancy enough to be served at a dinner party or for a special occasion.
