This marinated Tilapia is grilled hot while basted in the marinade to give it lots of extra flavor. It's a favorite around my room mates!

This recipe tasted very good and was well recieved by the entire family. I made a couple changes to the recipe. I didn't have an onion so I used onion powder and it worked great. I also used red bell pepper which is sweeter and it was delicious. Finally, I reduced the oil to 1/4 cup because I didn't want oily sauce poured over the fish to keep it more healthy. We had ample sauce to marinate and for eating. Thanks for the recipe. We will do it again.
