who here eats tilapia grilled? any idea? or recipes ? I finally got around to grilling tilapia over a bbq grill last night and it was great. I jus added garlic and onion powder ( lightly ) and rubbed the fillets down with olive oil. Grilled them in under 15mins. Great tasting and with lump charcoal they had a good BarBeOue falvor. I 've tried them boil,baked and fried and by far grilled has been excellent.
