This recipe was only slightly modified from the original at Budget Bytes, with the addition of Old Bay and cilantro.

(3 oz.) tilapia fillets
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves pulled from stems
1 med lemon, more for garnish, if you wish
2 clove garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp Old Bay (optional)

 Put the cilantro leaves in a blender or food processor. Zest and juice the lemon and put in the blender. Add the garlic, olive oil, salt, Old Bay and pepper. Blend until the cilantro and garlic are finely minced and the mixture is well combined. Place the thawed fish fillets in a shallow dish and pour the lemon-garlic-cilantro mix over top. Make sure both sides are covered. Some may run off but that is okay. Spray the grill surface with non-stick spray and preheat for 5 minutes. Place the fish fillets in the hot grill, close the lid and set the timer for 2 minutes. Check the fish after two minutes. If you want the fish more browned, cook for one additional minute. Carefully remove the fish from the grill as it will be delicate. Serve with additional slices of lemon if desired.
