Spicy Grilled Tilapia Fish - Nigerian Grilled Tilapia Fish


Here is my home made recipe for spicy grilled Tilapia Fish 

A few days ago, I decided to have grilled tilapia fish for lunch but wanted to try my hands on a combination of ingredients that will give a taste that didn't come from anywhere else.



Nigerian Grilled Tilapia Fish

Nigerian Grilled Tilapia Fish


Ingredients

Crushed Chilli
1 Maggi Cube
Aromat Seasoning (a little bit)
Salt (a little bit)
Mixed Herbs
Vegetable Oil

Cooking Instructions


Mix them all together in a bowl and add a reasonable amount of vegetable oil (not excessive).

Gently cut two deep lines into both sides of the fish to allow the marinade to penetrate effectively.

Using a brush, cover the clean tilapia fish in and out with the mixture and set aside (in the fridge is optional) for 30 mins or longer if you want. This will allow the marinade to bed itself into the fish which means good taste. For additional taste you can drop in couple of bay leaves into the fish.

Pre-heat your grill and allow each side of fish to get grilled for about 20 mins as this will allow the fish to get cooked both internally and externally.

Serve with Salad or garri if you like.
