Gluten Free Recipe: Grilled Tilapia with Oranges
Guest Post by Jenny Manseau, Culinary Arts/Culinary Nutrition student and author of the blog, Creative Cooking Gluten Free.
4 oz of Tilapia per person
1 large orange sliced about 1/8 – 1/4 inch thick
Kosher salt – to taste if desired
Aluminum foil (Not to eat!)
Heat grill to medium heat.
Place each fillet of Tilapia in aluminum foil, place two – three slices of orange on the fish and if you would like to add salt, be sure to season the fish and the oranges a little – this is optional, Dad made it with no salt and it was quite flavorful.
Seal foil package tightly and grill with the orange side down first. This helps release the juices from the orange, steam the fish and infused the flavor into the fish.
Cook for three minutes, flip carefully and repeat on the other side. This time may differ based on the thickness of your fillets.
Remove from grill, let packets sit for two minutes, cut open and serve with side(s) of you choice.
