Morning All:

A couple of weeks ago did some Tilapia on bed of lemons and EggHatter said that was one to do again...so tonight we did...with a couple of minor modifications.

Still used some Tilapia fillets, but this time on a bed of lime slices with pieces of culantro and a sprinkling of Tsunami Spin...on the small at about 400...

Also cut up a sweet tator for fries...a little EVOO and a sprinkling of Pineapple Head...on one of the Larges...

Here are the finished fries, up close...

And the fish was perfect...

No conversation at dinner as all EggHatter did was "oooooo"..."aahhh"...while she ate.

Have a GREAT day!

    The fish looks good, but the taters look fantastic!

    Boy, if I ever got OOOs and AAAs from my wife I would say, WTF !

    Looks interesting. What would be the dome temp when cooking fish ?

    Thanks for the inspiration.

  • That looks really nice. Any issues with the fish crumbling and falling through the grate? I am nervous about cooking tilapia because of that. The fries look great.

    Wendy really liked it on the limes, how did it compare with the lemon cook.
    Also which wine did you choose for the fries? :whistle: :laugh:
  • SSN686SSN686 Posts: 3,099
    Morning Dave:

    Thanks! Using the bed of lime (or lemon) slices helps prevent the fish from falling through the grate...plus it does add some nice flavor.

    I don't flip the fish at all...basically you are "baking" the fish.

    Have a GREAT day!

    Morning Pat:

    Both limes and lemons were good, but Kathy (and I) like the limes better. No wine on the fries tonight (inside joke :laugh: :laugh: ).

    Have a GREAT day!

    Jay,
    Looks good! Gotta admit the thought went through my mind that with that many lemon slices in that size of a bed at 400 degrees tells me you must be a pretty fast card dealer to get them all down! Thanks for sharing!

    Morning Ron:

    Thanks! Didn't even try to throw that many lime slices on a 400 degree Egg...here is the grid on the counter waiting to go on the Egg...

    Morning Judy:

    Thanks!

    While this is good, I don't think anything will replace the Shrimpburgers!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Morning Tim:

    Thanks!

    I DO NOT do snow & ice, so it will have to be about 6 months from now before I head that way...Most of our family still living in Southern Illinois and they have been told no weddings or funerals between October & March if they want us there :laugh: !

    Have a GREAT day!

    Looks great Jay! Did I miss the temp on the fries? Thx.
  • Fries look awesome, sweet poatoes and the egg- how could you go wrong! And I think I just figured out how I'll use up some of the left over Lake Michigan brown trout from this fall's run. ;)
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Jay.............another great cook yet again.....
  • What are the steps to making the sweet potato fries????
    They look great! Thanks.....
  • SSN686SSN686 Posts: 3,099
    Morning Jim:

    Thanks! Having the bed of lime/lemons is good for protecting the fish and imparting some flavors.

    Have a GREAT day!
