Tilapia is my go-to fish, it's readily available, it's cheap and the best part is it can take on any flavor you want to throw at it. It is a more delicate fish than the 'meatier' fillets like salmon or tuna, so you may want to use a grill basket or grill sheet when throwing this fish on the grill.
- 4 Tilapia fillets
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Two tablespoons Cookies Flavor Enhancer or all purpose seasoning salt
- One lemon, sliced into four wedges and brushed lightly with olive oil
Season the fish on both sides with the seasoning salt and place into a large ziplock bag. Pour in the olive oil and refrigerate for one hour. When the grill is ready to receive, place the fillets and the lemon wedges over direct heat and put the lid down so the fish and citrus can absorb some smoky goodness. This fish cooks quickly, it's only going to need about 2-3 minutes per side. Remember, because this fish is flaky, you may want to use a grilling basket or grill sheet. Serve the fish immediately, squeezing that grilled lemon wedge over the Tilapia at the table.
Serving Options: Tilapia is SO versatile! Brush it with your favorite BBQ sauce before placing on the coals. A classic preparation of garlic butter with fresh chopped Italian parsley is also very good. And there's nothing like a little kick, Tilapia brushed with Sriracha is excellent.
