Spicy Tilapia with Aioli
This is a great recipe for tilapia. This fish is loaded with flavor and quite similar to tilapia dishes found in restaurants.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 2 pounds tilapia fillets
  • 2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • For the Aioli:
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried tarragon


Prepare aioli by combining all aioli ingredients in a bowl, mixing well and then refrigerate until you are ready for it.

Preheat grill. Combine spices for fish and sprinkle over both sides of the tilapia fillets. Place on hot grill and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes over a medium high heat. Turn once during grilling. Serve topped with Aioli.

My husband don't like fish much, but when we cooked our tilapia last night, he asked for more. I could not believe it. It must be so good!
