Grilled Tilapia with Lemon Basil Vinaigrette

Tonight, I decided to try a new fish recipe. My family is hard to deal with in the fish department. They do not like the taste of fish! Well, I found one!! Even the kids loved it :)

Grilled Tilapia with Lemon Basil Vinaigrette


3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
3 Tbsp. Minced Fresh Basil, Divided
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
2 tsp. Capers, Drained
1/2 tsp. Grated Lemon Peel
4 Tilapia Fillets (6 oz each)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper


For vinaigrette, in a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, 2 Tbsp basil, olive oil, garlic, capers and lemon peel; set aside 2 Tbsp. for sauce. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper. Brush both sides of fillets with remaining vinaigrette.

If grilling the fish, coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4" from the heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with fork. Brush with reserved vinaigrette and sprinkle with remaining basil.
