  • Cut a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil large enough to make an airy foil pouch to hold tilapia fillets.

  • Place fillets on top of the foil and season with dill, salt, and pepper. Place chives on top of fillets, followed by butter. Seal up pouches loosely.

  • Cook fillets on the preheated grill until they flake easily with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can also cook this over charcoal for about 15 minutes.
