Blue Ribbon Recipe
A delicious light meal for a hot summer day. Tilapia is a mild fish so the Cajun seasoning and lemon pepper are perfect to jazz up the flavor. We love placing a slice of lemon on the tilapia while it grills. The tilapia just soaks up the flavor. If you want to kick up the spiciness, the grilled jalapenos are a nice touch on the side. The ranch mellows the spice out a bit. Yum!
Season to suit your taste buds, but be mindful of the Cajun seasoning. Some have a lot of salt so go easy.
Heat flat grill to medium heat.
Wash & pat dry tilapia.
Sprinkle tilapia with olive oil. Lightly coat with Cajun seasoning and lemon pepper.
Place the top side of the fish (rounded) down on the grill first. After 3 to 4 minutes flip the fish over and continue to cook 3 to 4 minutes longer. At this point, you can add the lemon slice on top of the fish.
If you choose to have the jalapenos, put them on the grill ahead of time rotating often till done.
The grilled jalapenos and ranch Dressing accompany the tilapia quite nicely.
