    I love tilapia. Can this also be done on the grill? Too hot to use oven at times here. 😉 So got to thinking about this on a grill instead. We use olive oil on the grill (George Foreman Outdoor/Indoor) all the time for whatever we’re going to grill. So thought would ask on this. Also any sub for the vinegar. I don’t get along with that at times for some reason. But it sure looks delicious.
