The Thrill of the Grill!

I made this fish yesterday, it was 98 degrees out and my oven wasn’t going on. It’s so quick to put together, it cooks up fast and the taste? Well, you’ll just have to try it, all I can say is that you won’t be disappointed!

I take a shallow baking sheet and wrap the top and bottom with tin foil. Drizzle olive oil on the bottom, and add thinly sliced garlic on the top. Place your fish fillets over the sliced garlic, I used tilapia.

Season your fish with salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of paprika for color. Toss in some fresh herbs, I used parsley and basil. Add sliced cherry tomatoes, and kalamata olives and a small handful of capers. Scatter a few lemon slices around and add some of the juice. Finish off by drizzling olive oil all over.

Place the pan on a hot grill and close the lid. The smell is intoxicating as the garlic starts cooking and infuses the fish. When your fish is firm to the touch, it’s done! This is great for a crowd, you can even use shrimp and a 1/2 sheet pan for more space. For my 4 fillets I just used a 1/4 sheet pan.

The flavors all blend together leaving an exceptional taste!

Straight from the farmers market, fresh asparagus and sweet knobby onions. ( that’s what I call them.) You got to have some veggies on the side!

When I see pretty artichokes I can’t resist them, I love them grilled and I often make them throughout the summer, a great way to start out your meal!

Basically I trim and quarter my artichokes and slowly boil them until tender. I let them cool completely down, then I pull out the choke and prickly leaves. Place the quartered artichokes in a bowl, drizzle olive oil all over, place grated romano cheese between the leaves along with salt, pepper, finely chopped garlic and fresh parsley. Place them on a hot grill turning them over until the cheese gets crusty and garlic cooks, it just takes a few minutes.

So good!

  1. 98 degrees? My teeth are chattering over my way. We’re having unusually cool June weather, and my tomatoes aren’t happy about it. I can’t wait to start grilling, though I squeezed in a fast grilled fish this weekend (under the fog). This is a beautiful dish, Marie.

  2. I wish I was your neighbour. Even the smell from a grill like this would be worth moving your way!

  3. Oh my gosh that fish looks amazing!!! I am definitely book marking it to try asap!!

  4. Can I just say? I don’t even like fish & I want to eat this! It looks delicious.

  5. MM I love artichokes as well. They are so delicious grilled!

  6. Thank goodness for the grill on these hot summer days. Your fish lloks very tasty, have to try this on my grill.

  7. 96F here, so will be making this tonight on my grill! Last nt I turned the oven on to roast…..why not use my grill? I made eggplant parm all on the grill, and it was great! No heating up the kitchen! Love this recipe.

  8. This is a great way to keep the heat outside the house. I even put my rice cooker out on the deck on hot days like this, and plug it into an outdoor outlet. Everything looks scrumptious, but my heart belongs to the artichokes!

  9. Look at those colors! Another winner Marie!
    I’m with Linda on those artichokes…

  10. The fish looks incredibly good and at 98*, you could almost cook it by sitting on your grill lid. We’ve been in the 90* for over a couple of weeks and the grill is getting lots of work.

  11. Oh, my ever lovin’ goodness, Marie. I don’t know how you do it. That fish is going on my grill asap and those artichokes are nothing short of spectacular. Thrill of the grill, indeed.

  12. I can just smell the delicious aroma! I love fish, especially tilapia, and especially prepared like this! xo

  13. Wow. This looks eye-popping delicious. Thanks so much for posting.

  14. It was about the same here today. This is a beautiful assembly of some of the best things about early summer. Thank you for your lovely site with great recipes and excellent graphics. Grazie! Moto bene!

  15. I’m in Colorado this week, and thankfully it hasn’t been quite as hot as NYC. My son has made some amazingly delicious dinners on his grill for us — I just love the intense flavoe grilling brings out in food!

    The artichokes look so good grilled — I have to try this!

  16. I LOVE GRILLING. It becomes my go-to tool in the hot days of summer.

  17. Just discovered your site. I usually prepare fish oreganata style but I’m going to try your recipe this weekend, it looks great.

  18. It was a silly 103 degrees F on Tuesday – and then went down to 50. Schizoid weather where the grill is our best friend – so yes, going to do this. But your artichokes? I am thinking of a new artrichoke diet – just your artichokes. Slim but happy.

  19. Marie, you have done it again! You’ve just provided all the inspiration I need for having friends over next weekend…I’ve grilled veggies this way in the oven before but never thought of doing it on the grill or to add fish. YUM! Thanks for ANOTHER wonderful and healthy recipe. Can’t wait to try to artichokes too!

  20. Just fyi, I made The Thrill of the Grill and it was fabulous. Posted it on my missmarys.wordpress.com with a link to you.
    Mary Fiorette, BTW what is your name?

  21. Wow, that is amazing. It such a simple, rustic delishious meal. Thanks for sharing that :) I can do this camping!!!

  22. I’m with Claudia and Linda on the artichokes, Marie! You always make everything look so beautiful on the grill.

    That fish was amazing!!! It was so easy to make and everyone was looking for seconds ( except my 9 yr old who only likes chicken fingers). Will definitely be making that again!

    About the artichokes- do you put them in foil or any thing? I’m concerned about the cheese and everything falling out.

  27. Anony, No, you put them straight on the grill, you want the cheese to get crispy!
