Seared Tilapia with Cherry Salsa

The original recipe called for grilled tilapia, but my husband and I are in-between grills at the moment, so I had to call an audible and simply pan-sear the tilapia instead.  The only difference is I didn’t get the smokey taste from the grill.  Honestly, I’m OK with that!

This dish is perfect for spring and summer when cherries are in season.  It’s also super easy!  So if you’re having a dinner party and want to impress, try this!
