Lime and Basil Grilled Tilapia

The combination of lime and basil really adds flavor to the Tilapia. Make a little more sauce if you can.

Can either be eaten along with grilled vegetables or sliced and served in tacos.

Prep Time: 15 minutes, Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 23 minutes

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 tilapia fillets (about 1 pound)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • zest of 2 limes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, minced
  • 2 teaspoons bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste

Directions:

Combine all ingredients except for the tilapia fillets in a resealable plastic bag. Turn to mix and add tilapia fillets. Seal and refrigerator for 30 minutes. Preheat grill. Pour marinade into a saucepan. Bring marinade to a low boil and remove from heat. Grill tilapia fillets for about 3 minutes per side over a high heat. When fish turns opaque remove from grill and serve with a few spoonfuls of marinade drizzled over top.

Recipe Origin: No clue. We’ve made it several times, and it’s good.
