Doing some grilling? Impress your guests by barbecuing fresh corn to perfection this way: Before grilling, peel all but the innermost layer of husk from the corn, and trim the excess silks as well. Place on the grill and as soon as the husk darkens enough that the outline of the kernels is visible through it, remove the corn. It will be perfectly cooked and have a wonderful, smoky flavor.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Blackened Tilapia w/ Grilled Corn on the Cob and Grilled Potatoes

 

 

It was a little taste of Summer around here as it was 89 degrees today! After a couple of mornings in the low 30’s, wild weather! Speaking of taste in about 2 weeks it will be time for the areas largest food festival, The Taste of Cincinnati, more updates on that as it gets closer. For dinner it was a grill fest; Grilled Blackened Tilapia w/ Grilled Corn on the Cob and Grilled Potatoes. As good as this sounds, it tasted even better!

 

Yesterday I received my new Fish Basket I had ordered off Amazon and couldn’t wait to try it!Went to Kroger early this morning and Grilled Blackened Tilapia 001bought some Tilapia Fillets, Red Potatoes, and Corn on the Cob and Grill Fest was on! Along with the Tilapia I’ll need a tablespoon or so of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter and Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. After firing the grill up on high I rinsed the Tilapia of and patted dry. Melted the 1 T butter in a microwave. About 15 seconds and brushed both sides of Tilapia with the melted butter. I coated both sides of the Tilapia with a generous amount of the rub. Then I got my Fish Basket out and sprayed it with Pam Grill Spray. Loaded the tilapia in the grill basket. If you’re using a griddle then add a tablespoon or so of vegetable oil to grill. Do not use olive oil since it smokes at high temperatures. Placed my Tilapia on preheated grill and closed the lid. Grilled for only 2 minutes and then flipped it and grilled another 2 minutes. Use a watch with a second-hand and do not over cook! The result some beautifully delicious Blackened Tilapia! You had the heat of the Blackened Seasoning and grilling it with the lid shut gave it a nice smoked taste also. It’s soooo good, you can have it with just the fillet or have a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich, either way your going to love it! This Blackened Tilapia would go great with some Black Beans and Rice or Cajun Rice.

 

To go with the Tilapia I grilled up some Grilled Potatoes and Grilled Corn on the Cob. For the Potatoes all I needed was the Red Potatoes, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. Quarter the Potatoes and toss the potatoes with Olive Oil and add the Sea Salt, and pepper to your taste. I used a wire grilling basket for the Potatoes, I sprayed it with Pam with Olive Oil to prevent them from sticking. Then just roast them until golden brown, about 7 to 10 minutes. Then you have some fine tatters.

 

For the Corn on the Cob, I roasted a couple of ears of it. To prep I needed 2 ears of Corn, 2 tablespoons of softened Butter ( Blue Bonnet Light Butter), and Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. Peel back the corn husks and remove the silk. Place 1 tablespoon butter, salt and pepper on each piece of corn. Close husks. Wrap each ear of corn tightly in aluminum foil. Place on the prepared grill. Cook approximately 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until corn is tender. 2 delicious grilled side dishes along with Grilled Blackened Tilapia, love that grill! For dessert later a Jello Sugarless Double Chocolate Pudding.
