Grilled Greek Snapper Over Sauteed Spinach

Updated on October 15, 2011

Grilled Greek Snapper

Grilling season, for me that season never ends because there is nothing better than grilling great tasting food all year round.

Now don't get me wrong here there are indoor grills that can feel the void of the cold harsh winter but there is nothing better than your bbq grill filled with some good charcoal and some hickory wood chips to give you that real out door flavor and taste wrapped in some smokey goodness.

So that's why I say grilling season is never over for me and that's why I'm going to share this grilled Greek snapper recipe over some sauteed spinach that I'm sure your going to thank me later for.

      Beth37 I believe it will work with tilapia because it's a lite tasting fish so it will hold the flavor of all the other ingredients.

      Attikkos you can use a different type of fish even a salmon or tuna would work.

      The herb butter would really work but it would take me away from my greek theme a little.
