Tilapia Fish Recipes| Basic Grilled Tilapia Fish

The Most Basic Recipe there is for the Tilapia Fish

Here is another Grilled Tilapia Fish Recipe, and there is not much difference between this and the Grilled Tilapia Fish Recipe with Mango Salsa I posted sometime ago. This just means that you can modify any of these recipes to fit your taste and you can name them what you want.

You can take ideas from already existing grilled tilapia fish recipes and let your imagination roll and let your taste buds decide. One such grilled tilapia recipe below could use some ‘enhancement’.


  • 4 fresh tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • Juice of one fresh lemon
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup orange bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper


  1. Mix olive oil, wine and lemon juice in a baking dish then marinate tilapia for 1 hour.
  2. In a small pan melt butter and sauté peppers, onions and garlic but do not over cook.
  3. Put fish on a well sprayed grill.
  4. Carefully brush on some of the marinade on the fish and sprinkle with half of the crushed pepper.
  5. Flip fish and repeat.
  6. Add the sautéed veggies to the top of fish and serve.
