Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe actually calls for Orange Roughy but any white fish is fine.

I usually use Tilapia, which you can buy in the freezer section of Trader Joe's as well as many other grocery stores, but at Trader Joe's you can get a whole pack for pretty cheap and it goes really well with this and many other recipes. (TJ's also has orange roughy).

Serve with cous cous, rice, or roasted potatoes and a salad or veggie.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 tsp. Grated lemon rind
2 tbsp. Lemon juice
½ tsp dried whole thyme
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp Paprika
Dash of garlic powder (or garlic salt)
4 fillets of white fish
Lemon slices for garnish


Combine the 1st 6 ingredients and marinate for at least 30 min or longer if desired.

Grill fish (in a pan on the stovetop) 4-6 minutes on each side or until flaky.

Baste often while cooking.

You can cook in it the marinade juice for added flavor if you like.

Garnish with lemon.
