Charcoal Grilled Tilapia

Tilapia is a great fish for simple meals at a perfect price point but is it possible to grill it for great flavor without losing all the meat between the grates?

Yes, and this cast iron campfire recipe is just the solution for that.


- Tilapia - Olive oil - Paprika - Onion - Garlic powder - Oregano - Butter


Arrange heated coals in an even layer and nestle a 10-inch cast iron skillet directly over the coals. Allow the cast iron to heat up.

When the skillet has heated, add the olive oil and, using a heat resistant glove and a long spatula, swirl to coat.

Lay the onion in the skillet and cover the grill. Cook until tender 5 to 7 minutes, checking occasionally and stirring.

Meanwhile, pat the tilapia dry. In a small bowl, mix the paprika, garlic powder and oregano together.

Sprinkle liberally over the tilapia filets on both sides. Add one tablespoon of butter to the skillet and slide the onions to the outer edges.
