Lemony Tilapia and Asparagus Grill

AnthonyFish, MAIN DISHES



For:  4 3 oz.


  1. Lightly spray the grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill on medium high.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the oil, vinegar, garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper. Pour into a large shallow casserole dish. Add the asparagus, turning several times to coat.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, 1 teaspoon lemon pepper, garlic powder, cayenne, and salt. Sprinkle half the mixture over one side of the fish, pressing lightly so the seasonings adhere. Lightly spray with cooking spray. Turn the fish over and repeat.
  4. Remove the asparagus from the marinade, discarding the marinade.
  5. Place the fish and asparagus lengthwise so they are perpendicular to the grates of the grill. (For the fish, you can also use a grill basket lightly sprayed with cooking spray.) Grill the fish for about 3 minutes on each side, or until it flakes easily when tested with a fork. Grill the asparagus for 4 to 5 minutes, turning frequently. Transfer both to a platter. Squeeze the lemon over the fish.
