    Just did some blackened talapia Tues. night. I used a CI griddle on the grid. I get the lump lit and the put the griddle on the egg. Go to about 500 dome temp (not sure how hot that makes the surface of the griddle). Talapia filets are coated with melted butter and then liberally seasoned with Paul Prudhome's Fish Magic. Cook on the griddle about 1 minute per side.

    Coat the filets with mayo and your choice of spices.  @400 F (ish) cook direct for about 2 minutes a side - flip with a long spatula or one designed for fish.  Only flip once.  Take off when the center of the filet in the thickest part is opaque.

    Or you can plank them.

    Or cook en papillote - all the recipes work for just about any fish.

    If it's a whole fish, just throw them on.  This is a pic of a couple of whole Tilapia (cut the heads off so I didn't have to watch them staring at me ;) )

    They mayo is to keep them from sticking - you won't taste it.

    I coat with olive oil and sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning and some salt. 300 deg, raised direct for about 10 min. I don't flip. Comes out great every time. Use a wide metal spatula to apply and remove from grid. They are delicate and fall apart easily.
  • I would suggest planking.

    I do mine in a cast iron skillet, 400 degrees for about 2 minutes per side. I use cajun spice or Dizzy Pig snake venom. I don't use all the butter in the picture anymore. Just a little olive oil. The plain one was for my daughter.
