Fast & Easy Dinner: Grilled Fish and Peppers

Fast & Easy Dinner: Grilled Fish and Peppers

If you're not usually a fan of fish, expand your horizons by making a light, grilled fish with a heavy, flavor-packed marinade. Use a mild white fish that has little to no "fishy taste" such as petrole sole, grouper, or halibut. This recipe comes together in a quick flash because the marinade is purchased Italian dressing and the fish soaks up the sauce rapidly. FIfteen minutes to marinate, eight to ten minutes to grill and dinner is done! A little cheese sprinkled on top makes for a nice fish introduction for children as well.

I've never liked any kind of seafood, but I feel like I'm missing out on really healthy dinners. So, I took EVERYONE's advice and tried tilapia (They also suggested Walleye, but tilapia is much cheaper). I can choke it down if I mix it in with my rice, but I'm always looking for a way to give it better flavor!

Ooh this is as easy as marinating salmon in teryaki sauce over night and then grilling it in a saucepan. that is also delish!

Positively yummy sounding! I would probably grill zucchini or squash instead of the peppers though.
