  • 1 to 2 pieces large tilapia cleaned and gutted
  • 2 pieces tomato diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil optional


  • Combine tomato, onion, salt, ground black pepper, and lemon juice in a bowl then mix well.
  • Stuff the mixture inside the cavity of the tilapia. Note: do not overstuff the fish.
  • Meanwhile, combine oil with 1 teaspoon of salt and mix.
  • Brush the oil and salt mixture on the exterior part of the tilapia. Note: The salt adds more taste while the oil prevents the skin to stick on the foil.
  • Wrap the tilapia in aluminum foil then secure the sides.
  • Grill the wrapped fish for about 12 minutes per side.
  • Remove from the grill and transfer to a serving plate.
  • Serve with ensaladang talong and steamed rice.
