Cilantro Tilapia

If you have an open grill rack use a grill basket or make a foil boat to place the fillets on or you'll lose part of the tilapia when turning.


  • 1/2 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 cup honey
  • juice from one lime
  • 4 Tilapia fillets, about 1/2 inch thick
  • Ad

  • salt to taste


Stir together cilantro, garlic, honey, and lime juice in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until the honey is easily stirred, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

Rinse tilapia fillets, pat dry and place in a baking dish, season with salt. Evenly pour marinade over the tilapia, cover and refrigerate 10 minutes. If you choose to use an oven to bake the fillets then disregard the 10 minutes for marinating before cooking and simply pop directly in to the oven after covering with the marinade. If grilling, discard marinade after marinating.

Coat grill rack (or foil boat) with cooking oil or Pam and preheat grill to high heat. If using an oven preheat to 425 degrees F.

Grill or bake tilapia fillets for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until fish is opaque and easily flaked with a fork. For moist filets, check each minute once turned so you don't overcook.
