Spicy Tilapia with Pineapple-Pepper Relish

I made this for dinner last night and it was so good that I had to post it right away! It is spicy, but the sweet pineapple is such a nice compliment.
Spicy Tilapia with Pineapple-Pepper Relish
Adapted from Cooking Light: Cooking through the Seasons.

2 tsp canola oil
1 tsp Cajun Seasoning
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
4 (6 oz. ) tilapia fillets
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh pineapple chunks
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped plum tomato
2 tbs rice vinegar
1 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
4 lime wedges

1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle fish evenly with spice mixture. Add fish to pan, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

2. Combine pineapple and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring gently. Serve pineapple mixture with fish. Garnish with lime wedges.

*I added a little oil to the spice mixture and applied with a brush. I also made the Pineapple Relish before cooking the fish so that it was all ready to go once the fish was done.
