New Cast Iron - Potatoes and Tilapia

LDRLDR Posts: 326

We made a run into town today and hit the farmers market, and made a pass through TJ Maxx, where I found a couple of pieces of cast iron.  The market had some good fingerling potatoes and onions, which went into the little pans (coated with bacon grease and garlic paste).  It was 360 degrees indirect with Ozark Oak and hickory for 25 minutes for the potatoes, and the tilapia went in at 12 minutes.  I added the onion tops, cheese, and bacon two minutes before pulling it all.  We really enjoyed the potatoes, but the tilapia (olive oil with salt and pepper) just didn't seem that great.  I'll have to switch to something different next time - maybe grouper.  I used the orange slices instead of a fish basket, and they worked pretty well.

    I agree the potatoes looked good.  never tried cooking on fruit....very interesting.  I usually cook salmon and tilapia in a wet cedar wrap.  Very good for imparting heat and smoke but not burning fish.

    Those pans are sweet. I tried grouper for the first time recently and loved it.
