Honey Soy Tilapia

Happy Memorial day to all of you!  I hope everyone has had a fun and safe weekend!  I was going to post a great "cook out" recipe, then I figured fewer people would be surfing the web today AND most people probably already had their menus planned, so if I posted another tilapia recipe, it wouldn't be missed by too many people!  Silly, I know, but still...

As you have probably already figured out by now, Chris and I are creatures of habit.  We eat a lot of fish and that fish is mainly tilapia.  Basically, it's the cheapest fish we can find that we both can agree on.  I know I should go out of my way to buy something fresh every now and then..but come on, we live in the land locked desert...there really isn't a lot of "fresh" fish within our grasp!  We do have this wonderful trout farm up north from us, but even when you try to purchase that fresh, it's outrageously priced (ok, except for last week when I found it on sale) least in my terms of fresh fish.  So you will pretty much only see tilapia here on my sight...nice thing about my recipes, you can pretty much use any type of white fish you have available.

Anyway...this was actually a pretty good recipe.  I have had it as a possibility to make for probably 6 months now, but always found something else I wanted to try first.  I'm actually kind of sorry I didn't try this sooner.  It was surprisingly good.

Honey Soy Tilapia
Adapted from SparkPeople Recipes
4 Tilapia fillets (or any white fish)
3 Tablespoons honey
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
3 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced

Mix the honey, soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic together in a small bowl.  Place fillets in a shallow bowl or Ziploc bag and pour the mixture over the fillets.  Let marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat grill or oven (400 degrees).

Tear off 4 squares of foil and spray with non stick spray.  Place one fillet on each piece of foil and close into a packet.  Place on the grill and cook for 12-14 minutes, turning at least one time.

To bake: Place fillets in a baking dish sprayed with non stick cooking spray.  Bake at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

"The Tilapia Lady" might be a new site for you. You must be the Arizona expert on cooking it. Looks really good.
