Oven Grilled Tilapia w/ Fried Plantains

“An easy, healthy, and delicious fish recipe that the entire family can enjoy” I made it for lunch yesterday and it was soooo good!

Oven Grilled Tilapia w/ Fried Plantains

One of the reasons I love Tilapia is 1) it is inexpensive and 2) to me it does not have that “fishy” taste like most fish do. Most times I prefer to oven grill it over frying. As it is lot healthier when grilled or baked.  Tilapia is a delicious fish that has an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and protein which are both important for good health.

If you have never tried Oven Grilled Tilapia, then now is the time!  The recipe is quite easy to make at home. The great thing is after you have marinated the fish for at least 30 minutes or even overnight for a more flavorsome tilapia, the rest is pretty much a breeze. I marinated this tilapia with a blended mixture of celery, onion, garlic, green + red bell peppers, green scotch bonnet pepper, scallions, and ginger, so each bit of this fish is so tasty and full of flavor. I also added a bit of curry powder to the mix for added spice. I am telling you this fish is so Mouth-watering.



  • 1 Tilapia 
  • ½ lemon or lime 
  • 2 bulbs of Scallions 
  • 1 Green scotch bonnet pepper 
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper 
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • ½ cup celery 
  • 1 inch of Peeled Ginger
  • ¼ tsp curry powder
  • ½ small onion 
  • 2 cloves of garlic 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon 
  • Salt and black pepper to taste 

Sauteed Vegetables

  • 1 large purple onion
  • ½ red + green bell peppers
  • 1 tomato chicken bouillon to taste. 


  • 2-3 ripe plantains

Cleaning Fish: Using a kitchen knife remove any scales on your fish. Rinse fish under cold water with lemon or lime Juice then pat dry using paper towel. Using a kitchen knife, make 4 deep diagonal cuts into the fish on both sides. Set aside.

Marinade: In a food processor or a blender; blend scallions, bell peppers, celery, ginger, curry, onion, garlic, olive oil, and chicken bouillon.

Scoop out 2 tbsp of the marinade and mix in 1 tsp of olive oil. Set aside to glaze the fish. 

Rub the marinade into the fish then season fish with salt and pepper to taste. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.


Move the rack in your oven up to the second highest position. Then Set your oven to broil on high.

Brush a bit of olive oil onto a broiler or grill baking pan to prevent fish from sticking then place fish onto it.

Broil for 15 minutes on each side. Brush each side once with left over marinade.

Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to a skillet and Sautee on medium-high heat.
