Tilapia with herbs- grilled.

The gamecocks were playing LSU last evening. G wanted to eat some nice, spicy fish!
5 big tilapia fillets were bought.
We were thinking 'deep Fry' to begin with. But noticing that more than one of us was sniffling, we decided grilling was the way to go!

What went into bringing it to the table:
5 fresh tilapia fillet- cleaned and dried.
2 tbp olive oil
2 tbp lime juice
1 tsp cayenne pepper (chilli powder)
1 tsp black pepper - crushed
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cabin seasoning
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp chives
1/2 tsp mint
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp parsley and salt to taste

Here's how it came to the table:
In a big bowl, mix all the ingredients to coat the fillets. Refrigerate to marinate for 2-3 hours.
Preheat oven to 500f. Grill the marinated fillets for 15 mins, turning once inbetween. They will come out crispy-topped and yummy.

Alternatively, you can bread and shallow fry the fillets.
Please adjust spices to suit your tastes.

We absolutely relished the fish. The herbs made it feel very gourmet and fresh.
In my kitchen, food is but only, one of the many reasons we set the table. We eat together to enjoy the company, to talk of our day and ofcourse also to enjoy what is on our plate.
Hoping that good food once more made palatable, the slightly unpleasant taste of a gamecocks defeat. It was a well fought game, and so heres hoping for more awesome gamedays!

Until another culinary muse, Bon Appetite.
