Emeril's Grilled Tilapia With Fresh Herbs


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



  1. Preheat a grill to medium
  2. 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.
