The Thrill of the Grill!

Sharing is caring!

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!

Italian Sauces My Way E-Book


  1. This fish and artichoke recipes look fantastic – we are artichoke fanatics and usually have some cooking every day – my husband and sons and grandchildren all love to eat them so this recipe will be a great new way to eat them (usually we boil them and the eat with mayonnaise or some kind of aoli) this looks like a special recipe and can’ wait to try it – we are fish eaters so the fish dish will be a great main dish. Marie I must tell you have given us a new view of Italian food and we love it! Before I go shopping I check your recipes and have so much fund picking out what we will be having for lunch or dinner that day – we are on an adventure and we owe it all to you. Will be trying these two recipes tomorrow and also your recipe for the chopped veggie salad – thanks Marie for all these great recipes – last recipe we tried was the chicken cacciatore we ate it all and licked the pan it was fantasticly yummy

  2. This post makes me wish it wasn’t pouring down rain and I could go outside and BBQ!

    Oh my goodness, those look divine! I am going to try these as soon as possible, but I have just one question. In the photo the artichokes look halved rather than quartered as your recipe states. Am I correct that they are halved or am I seeing wrong? I want to make sure I make these as close to your recipe as possible.

    I made this fish for my husband last night. He loved it. He said it was his new favorite. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. I have never been good at making artichokes but these look awesome! How long do you boil them for?

  6. These look amazing I am going to try them out!!!

  7. I made this tilapia last night (in the oven) and it was fantastic. My husband loved it, flavorful and filling but still like. Thanks!

  8. I have got to try the fish recipe, it looks amazing and can’t wait to serve it with my next get together with friends. So easy.

  9. Your site is amazing. My mouth is watering just reading the recipes. Thank you so much for sharing. I love to cook and have a great love for italian food. Check out my Bacon Fettucini if you get the chance,


  10. Just made these artichokes. SO AMAZING

  11. fantastic! thank you for your time putting this blog together. I’ve made asparagus before on the grill (also a fan fav if you wrap in back then grill) tonight we had artichokes. which I’ve never made on the grill. thanks, amazing

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

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

  14. Cris kossegi says

    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!

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

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

  20. 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!

  21. 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.

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

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

  24. 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!

  25. 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!

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

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

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

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

  31. 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!

  32. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

  38. 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.
