Asian Grilled Tilapia

I think by now, most of you know my love for Asian flavors.  I use a lot of the same ingredients throughout my many recipes on this site.  Some say repetition can be boring - I am not one of those people.  I figure as long as it doesn't taste exactly like what I just made four days ago, everything is ok :)  As always, if you really want to make this dish and you don't have a grill - don't worry, bake at 400 degrees F for 12-14 minutes... so no excuse - well... unless you don't like fish, then use this on chicken or pork... SEE, truly no excuses!

Printable Recipe 
1 Tablespoon sweet chili sauce
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon mirin
1 Tablespoon chili paste
drop or two of sesame oil
2 tilapia fillets

Mix the sweet chili, soy, mirin, chili paste and sesame oil together until well combined.

Preheat grill to 350 degrees F.  Tear two squares of aluminum foil large enough to form a packet around the fish.  Spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Place the fish in the middle of each piece of foil and spoon the chili mixture evenly over each piece of fish.  Bring together opposite sides of the foil, fold together to seal.  No fold the ends to seal into a packet.  Place packet directly over the fire and grill for 12-14 minutes, rotating the packet once.  Carefully remove from grill and allow to cool for 5 minutes.  Carefully open packet and remove fish.  Enjoy!

I was just thinking that this should be my tilapia night and voila, here's your recipe. I keep a bag of frozen from Costco for a healthy weeknight meal. All ingredients on hand. Done!

Except for the fact that you misspelled "chicken" as "tilapia", I LOVE this recipe and think I'll try it.
