Something Other than Fried: Grilled Seasoned Tilapia

What’s your meat rotation for dinner? Ours? Chicken, turkey fish – repeat.  Growing up anytime we ate fish it was usually fried and on a Friday.  But the hubby and I are getting older (thank God).  We now concern ourselves with whether or not we have ‘good fats’ running through our arteries.  Plus the kiddos are watching.  I hope to pass on more than fried fish recipes.  So I’ve been tasked with the challenge to find a way to fix fish that didn’t take a bath in hot grease first. 
It was a challenge but we have finally gotten used to the taste of fish without a crispy, golden crust.  We now use more of our griddle than a pan of grease.  It’s not a replacement for fried fish in our dinner meat rotation.  But a good way to stall in the fried fish in between times.
