Spiced Tilapia

Happy Father’s Day!  I hope it’s a fun filled and relaxing day for everyone.  My husband got called into work today so I have a little me time.   So what better to do…than blog?

My mother-in-law gave us an electric indoor grill for Christmas and I was surprised at how often I have used it. Fish, chicken, shrimp, vegetables…it’s been really fun to cook anything using it.  A few days ago I made a tilapia dish I often make and I decided to grill it.  My fish came out with beautiful grill marks and it was a nice change from pan frying or baking the fish. It’s a very simple rub with some spices and olive oil and you get a very fragrant and flavorful fish.   If your tilapia pieces are on the smaller side then feel free to use a little less salt than the 1/2 tsp the recipe calls for.

Spiced Tilapia (2 tilapias pieces)
½ tsp dried cumin
½ tsp dried coriander
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp chili
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp kosher salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tbs oil

Combine all ingredients into paste
Spread all over fish
Marinate a minimum of 15-30 minutes
Grill medium heat about 4 minutes per side.
Serve with lime wedges (optional).

Paste will be bright and red.
The marinate gives a nice bright color.
Pretty grilled tilapia.
Served with couscous and a kale salad.  Enjoy!
