Tilapia is a fish that is easy to grill. We top our grilled tilapia with a tasty combination of tomatoes, olives and basil.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat a grill to medium high.
  2. Prepare the grilled tilapia topping: combine the tomatoes, basil, lemon juice, olives and half of the olive oil (1/2 tablespoon) in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. CombineĀ  the remaining half tablespoon olive oil and pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  4. Rinse and pat dry the tilapia filets. Add the tilapia to the bowl with olive oil, and gently turn over the filets to coat with the oil. Let the fish sit for about 5 minutes.
  5. Spray the grill generously with cooking oil. Take a tilapia fillet out of the bowl, gently shake off the excess olive oil and place the fillet on the grill. Repeat for the other fillet.
  6. Grill for 3 minutes on one side, then carefully flip the fillets to grill for 3 to 4 minutes on the other side. Use a grill spatula to remove the tilapia from the grill to a platter. The fish should be just cooked through to a white color.
  7. Serve the grilled tilapia topped with the tomato basil mixture. Enjoy!
