  • 1 whole large tilapia cleaned (scales and gut removed)
  • 1 large plum tomato cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 small yellow onion cubed
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons course sea salt
  • Cooking oil spray


  • Rub 1 1/2 teaspoons salt all over the fish. Set aside.
  • Combine the tomato, onion, scallions, garlic powder, ginger, lemon juice, pepper, and remaining salt in a bowl. Mix well.
  • Stuff the mixture in the cavity of the tilapia.
  • Heat-up the grill. Once the grill is ready, spray a little cooking oil on both sides of the tilapia. This will prevent the skin of the fish from sticking on the grill.
  • Grill each side of the tilapia for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove from the grill and arrange in a serving plate. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
  • Share and enjoy!
