Lemon-Butter Herb Grilled Tilapia Filets

These tilapia filets are packed full of flavour and are super easy to make on the barbecue! Other white fishes, like cod or halibut can easily be substituted!

I love barbecuing these tilapia filets to add even more flavour to them. Also, wrapping them in tin foil allows the flavours to soak in even more!

I have only tried this recipe with tilapia, which is normally a bland fish. But, these spices made it extremely flavourful. I imagine any type of white fish would be delicious and I’m excited to try this recipe in the future with cod or halibut!


  • Servings: 6
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes


  • 8 – 10 tilapia filets
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 2 tbsp garlic salt
  • 3 tbsp paprika
  • 3 tbsp dried thyme


  • Preheat the barbecue to medium-high.
  • Pat the filets dry with paper towel.
  • Lay out some tin foil and spread butter around to coat it.
  • Add the lemons to the tin foil.
  • Add the spices to the fish and put it on the lemons.
  • Wrap the fish in the foil and grill on the barbecue for 5 minutes on each side.
  • Enjoy the dish!
