Grilled Jamaican Jerk Tilapia Packets

In the mood for a Caribbean meal? Try grilling this tilapia dish. The poblano pepper is mild so if you want to really kick up the heat, try adding a little serrano or habanero pepper.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Jerk Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Brush well with mixture on both sides of fish. Place equal portions of onion, bell pepper, and poblano on each piece of fish. Season lightly with salt and black pepper. Crimp edges of foil over and seal packets well. Place on grill and cook for 10 minutes, turn, and cook for a remaining ten.
