YIELD 4 to 6 servings
|2 whole||tilapia fillets|
|8 tablespoons||extra virgin olive oil|
|2 tablespoons||minced fresh soft herbs, such as thyme, chives, parsley, oregano|
|1 tablespoon||Creole seasoning|
|2 teaspoons||minced garlic|
|Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper|
- Preheat a grill to medium
- Season the fish fillets with salt and pepper on the flesh side. Using a small spoon or a basting brush, liberally coat the flesh side with the oil-herb mixture. Place fish on the grill or grill pan, skin side down. Cook for 3 minutes. Brush the fillets again with the oil-herb mixture and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Repeat this process until the flesh is firm and opaque, for a total cooking time of about 14 to 15 minutes for fish fillets this size. Remove from the grill and serve immediately.
