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).
