Grilled Tilapia is one of my favorite Tilapia Recipe. There are many ways to grill tilapia; this variation requires the fish to be wrapped securely in aluminum foil to trap the juice producing a very flavorful grilled fish with a texture similar to steamed fish.

There is also a unique method of cooking that I witnessed when I went to the municipality of Taal in Batangas. A flat metal sheet is heated-up then the newly caught fish is directly placed on top of the sheet. It may sound more like searing rather than grilling. The result was fantastic. The texture is similar to fried tilapia without being oily.
