Grilled Tilapia

Does anything say summertime more than a backyard BBQ? I don’t know about you, but I am so happy that our days are getting longer and our nights are getting warmer.  All I want to do is lounge outside with my family with some good food and laughter. 

Summer cooking to me is all about fresh and easy… and not heating up my kitchen.  (It gets to be over 100 degrees in the summer where I live!)  I love pulling things from my garden when I can (come on corn!!!), so everything is as healthy as can be .  And I try to keep stocked up on everything else, but that’s not always doable, is it? (Raise your hand if you forgot about that fresh basil in the back of your produce bin that is now all slimy!!!) So, here is my secret ingredient for easy food prep that I like to have on hand: Dorot.

Dorot are pre-portioned garlic, herbs, and other seasoning cubes that I keep in my freezer so I’m always ready to whip up something tasty. As much as I like fresh, this company makes the next best thing. Although this is a sponsored post, I absolutely love these little cubes that are taken from the company’s own farm and flash-frozen within 90 minutes of harvest. I pick up their products at my local Whole Foods and for this Grilled Tilapia recipe, nothing says summer BBQ to me more than cilantro and lime… and garlic – always garlic!!!

(Oh wait, did I mention they are raw, vegan, non-GMO, kosher, gluten- free, soy-free, and nut-free? No preservatives, no artificial colors – For real!)

I’m almost embarrassed to say how quick and easy it was to pull this recipe together for Dorot. But honestly, that’s the whole point of having these cubes on hand.

I just popped a few cubes into a small bowl with butter and melted them together.

Squeeze on some lime juice, brush on the butter spread and add a little pepper.  Grill for just a few minutes per side and that’s it!

I served the grilled tilapia with grilled corn using the same butter spread: butter with cilantro and garlic cubes. (Make sure to use a different/clean brush than you used for the fish, though.) It’s so good, especially with a little Mexican Cojita (or feta) cheese sprinkled on top. The whole thing was served on a bed of spinach, to add to the light summer meal, with some lime wedges on the side.

With a two year shelf life, you can keep their whole line of products on hand and not worry about anything going bad.  And they aren’t just for grilling.  You can use these in smoothies, potatoes, salads… anywhere your recipe calls for one of their eight varieties. To see what else they offer, head on over to Dorot to learn more.

Pin it for later!
