Complete Fish Dinner on the Grill!

Fish Dinner on the Grill

Don’t turn on the oven! Beat the kitchen heat this summer and make your whole fish dinner on the grill! This recipe can be put together quickly, cooked on the barbecue and you will only have one pan to wash! (Or maybe not, if the foil doesn’t tear.)

Fish Dinner on the Grill

Serves 4


  • 4 Tilapia fillets (approximately 6 ounces each) or other fresh fish
  • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • paprika
  • fresh herbs (I used parsley and some basil.  Use whatever you prefer.)
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 4 small peppers, cut in half and seeded
  • 4-6 green onions
  • 1 lemon, 1/2 thinly sliced (the other half reserved for juice)
  • 1/4 cup green olives
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives
  • 2 Tablespoons capers
  • Fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat your grill to a medium-high setting.
  2. Wrap the top and bottom of a shallow baking sheet with heavy-duty foil.
  3. Drizzle 1 Tablespoon of olive oil on the foil.
  4. Add the thinly sliced garlic to the pan.
  5. Season the fish liberally with salt, pepper, paprika, fresh herbs and lay on the pan.
  6. Add the ingredients (yellow squash through capers) to the pan.
  7. Sprinkle with lemon juice from the reserved half lemon.
  8. Drizzle 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil all over the vegetables and fish.
  9. Place the pan on the hot grill and close the lid.
  10. The fish is done when firm to touch, approximately 15-20 minutes.

    This looks amazing and so healthy! We eat mostly fish at home. I cook on the grill but I would not have thought of this method on the cookie sheet. So ready! Thank you!!!!
