    healthy way to cook your tilapia. I added a little of the McCormick Seafood rub to it, to add a little kick to it. Turned out great

    Delicious and easy. We had a bag of frozen, individually sealed tilapia filets and I wanted to try something different than what we'd been doing (pan frying). We set the grill on medium rather than medium-high and the fish was perfectly cooked after about 12-13 minutes. This recipe is definitely a keeper! I can't wait to try different spice combinations when making the herb butter!
