Ingredients:

  • 4 pieces of tilapia
  • 1/2 of a small onion sliced
  • 1 cup of matchstick carrots
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup store bought teriyaki marinade (Mr. Yoshida’s Sweet Teriyaki is a good one)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper

Directions:

Preheat grill to about 350 °F

Cut 4 18×18 pieces of heavy-duty tin foil.

Divide the onions, pepper, mushrooms, and carrots evenly and place them in a small pile in the center of the foil pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Lay one piece of fish over each veggie pile. Sprinkle with salt and pepper then divide the remainder of the ingredients over the top of the fish. Seal each package by bringing the two opposite edges of the foil together and crimping it, but don’t press it flat. Leave some room in the top of the foil package so it can steam. Fold the other edge in and up slightly toward the center, so the liquid doesn’t leak out and the package is sealed but not flat.

Place foil packages on BBQ for about 12 minutes depending on the size of the filets. You can open one slightly to see if it is cooked. Make sure you don’t over cook the fish you can always put it back on the grill if it is undercooked.

Serve and enjoy!

I am hearing impaired so I can’t hear all you said to make this tilapia. We are both diabetic so are concerned, is this recipe safe for diabetics to eat? We eat a lot of tilapia and this looks so good.
Thank you Mitch

Sugar says:

Hi, you can find all the ingredients below the video. I do think this will be fine for diabetics. Enjoy!

Hi Sugar!
I just found your video after googling for a grilled fish recipe. You make it look so easy that we’re going to try it for dinner tonight! We live in Stockholm, Sweden and are really jealous of your patio overlooking the water in the warm sunshine (all year round!) :)

Sugar says:

Thank you for the lovely feedback. Enjoy the fish. I have never been to Sweden but it looks so pretty. I will have to get there one day. :)

Lisa says:

Just discovered this website the other day and I am going to try this today! So excited, it looks so yummy! I am going to do this in the oven instead of on grill though.

Sugar says:

Hi Lisa,

I’m so glad you found my site too. The oven works well, enjoy!

Stephanie says:

This looks yummy! Could you bake it in the oven? We live in a condo and have no grill. If so, what temp and time?

Sugar says:

Yes you sure can do this in the oven. Just do it at 350 for the same amount of time. You can open one and check it to make sure it’s done. It’s best to undercook and have to put it back for a minute or two than to over cook it.

Enjoy!

Daphne says:

I am going to prepare this tonight. I just bought some fresh tilapia. It looks great!

Lisa says:

Hi Sugar- I just came upon your website today and I am loving it!!! I can’t wait to try this recipe….. I just have one question: when you put the “package” on the grill do you close the lid or keep it open? Thanks so much!

Sugar says:

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for the nice feedback. Yes I do close the grill. Have fun making it.
