Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Tried Tilapia Again

Always looking for low cal cooks so took another run at Tilapia, again at 350-400F dome raised direct no smoke. 

This time threw the Tilapia in a 'waffle pan' (?) that we use for small veggies on the grill. The problem with Tilapia, as with most fish, is that once cooked it breaks up easily rendering it a poor 'grill-mate'. Hence the waffle pan. Seven CostCo Tilapia filets spaced around in the waffle pan and each brushed with Italian dressing. 

Threw on some ABTs made of split Jalepenos with cream cheese, green onion, and some crab cake stuffing along with one large Portabello and some slice onion.

Everything cooked between 10-20 minutes. The fam loved it. I was able to transfer the Tilapia to a serving platter without too much breakage or flakage and may have been able to avoid any altogether had the waffle pan not been overfilled with overlaying filets.

The ABTs and grilled onion were super-enjoyed by my son and I with the mild fish. 

The wife loved the lo cal fish dish and the Portabello. 

It all went well with a couple of Coors Lights and a side green salad.

We live better than Kings did!
