I was at Costco yesterday and found fresh boneless and skinless Tilapia. I picked a tray and decided to grill the filets. Now I’ve done these filets before on a vegetable tray, but I decided to cook them a little differently this time. I picked up some dehydrated cornhusks and soaked them in water. Cleaned the filets and seasoned them with salt, black pepper, whit pepper, lemon pepper, granulated onion powder, and paprika. And then I made a mixture of minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, fresh parsley and Thyme. Brushed the filets and the husks with the liquid mixture, placed a thin slice of lemon on top of each filets, and then wrapped them up like tamales. I know this isn’t a new concept, but as you can see in the pictures below the filets are not entirely encased in the husk. I wanted to leave as much of the fish exposed as possible. This way the fish will get nice and smoky. Also when the husks charred, they would also contribute to the smoky flavor.
Grilled the filets over coals with zucchini halves. The fish filets were awesome. The filets were very juice and tasty, even my fussy kid loved (she usually does not eat fish).
To all the Cha-Griller owners, I used mine yesterday as a grill, and it preformed beautifully. Please forgive me for bragging, but I love this grill.
