Ever since my spectacular failures grilling fish, I've become gun-shy grilling fish on the grill.
They all come out. . . not pretty. Which is an understatement.
I've had fishies that only its mother could love -- provided that its mother could recognize it as her childfish.
Remember this?!?! There are more uglies in our "Ugly Fish" post.
But, as they say, you only fail when you stop trying.
Grilled whole fish is something I so love (pike mackerel), one of my most anticipated and most cherished food experiences ever, so I do want to keep trying.
I picked up some tilapia at the supermarket. On most days, tilapia is the one fish that we can have alive, swimming in the fish tanks, at a reasonable enough price.
Sidenote: I do miss my childhood, where we can have quite a goodly selection of freshly caught fish at the wet markets. Gone are those days.
So here, me getting back my courage, I hedged my bets by tying up the fish with string.
I also put some lime slices inside the cavity of fish, seasoned them simply with salt and pepper.
I had a couple of jalapeno peppers losing their way and finding themselves in the thick of things.
TS made some lime salt and we served the fish with mango salsa.
Awesome grilled fish. I think I'm emboldened enough to try grilling fish again.
