Zesty Grilled Fish

The original recipe for this was called Zesty Baked, one, you know you can bake this, you don't need to grill.  And two, you know that you can use a different type of fish, you don't have to follow "the same thing, the same thing, the same thing" like Chris and I.  Heck, you could even put this on chicken or pork instead of fish. Not only was this fish delicious, it was also really simple.  I'm going for simple and tasty more and more these days.  Most of the seasonings used are in your pantry as we speak..or as I write, I should say...and if they aren't, you should make a point to have these on hand.  They are all very versatile spices....and we all know how much I love versatile things :)

Zesty Grilled Fish
Adapted from Taste of Home, Simple & Delicious 
Printable Recipe 
4 Tilapia fillets
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt (I used kosher)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Combine the oil and lemon juice in a small bowl; brush over both sides of each fillet.  Combine remaining ingredients; sprinkle or rub over both sides of each fillet.  Place each fillet on a square of foil sprayed with non-stick spray.  Fold up sides to seal.  **To Bake: place fillets in a baking dish sprayed with non-stick spry.  Bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.**

Place foil packets on preheated grill (medium heat).  Grill for 12-14 minutes, turning at least once.  Carefully remove from grill and foil packets.  Enjoy!

The color on this is great! Your post reminded me that I'm out of paprika, too :) I think I'll try this on chicken or pork.
