Step 4

Carefully seal up foil on all sides, leaving some room inside the packet for heat to circulate.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Lots of flavor! I used pollock fish instead of tilapia because that's what I had on hand. I grilled over a charcoal grill and wished I had pulled the fish out at 7 minutes. I let it run for about 11 and because the coals were HOT, it overcooked slightly, but now I know not to do that next time. Perfect tasting fish. Thank you, Teresa, for sharing!
