Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 300 g tilapia fillets (about 2 large fillets, cut in half)
  • 4 zucchinis cut lengthwise in quarters and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 plum tomatoes halved lengthwise
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Method

Mix together 1 tsp of the oil, half of the basil, the lemon zest and half each of the salt and pepper; rub all over fish. Set aside.

In bowl, toss zucchini with 1 tsp of the oil and a pinch each of the salt and pepper. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer to plate. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; keep warm.

Meanwhile, toss together tomatoes, vinegar and remaining oil, salt and pepper. Place on greased grill; close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer to plate. Sprinkle with remaining basil; keep warm.

Meanwhile, place fish on greased grill; close lid and grill, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested with fork, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve with zucchini and tomatoes.
