This was an excellent summer dish. Tilapia is a light fish and has great texture if cooked properly. We love fish on the grill in the summer and this marinade really was refreshing. We served the Quinoa and Black Beans as a side to this dish and they paired very nicely! Fish is so good for you and if you can buy it fresh instead of frozen it all the better! Enjoy!
2 shallots, minced
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons tequila (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 tilapia fillets
Combine the shallots, garlic, oregano, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, tequila, salt, and pepper in a gallon-sized sealable bag or large bowl; shake or stir well to combine. Add the tilapia to the mixture and store in the refrigerator 2 to 4 hours, turning every 30 minutes.
Grill until fish is flakey but moist about 10 minutes.
This can also be baked in a 450 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes
