Berbere Spiced Grilled Tilapia Fish

This is a quick and easy recipe but also delicious and can be had with anything thing you would usually have the grilled fish with. You can also make it the way you would normally make your grilled fish. What makes this recipe special is the Berbere spice that you will use to marinade the fish. This East African spice is flavourful and you can find out more about it in my blog post here, where I also show how you can make your own home made spice if you don't want to get a store bought one. Now let's get into the recipe.




-Grilled Fish(however much you want)

-Seasoning cubes/powder

-Berbere Spice

-Oil (any of your choice/preference)



-Cling film

-Grilling Pan


1) Wash your fish clean and pat dry with a kitchen towel.

2) Score the fish- ie make slits/cut on the fish. This is to allow the spice and seasoning to get into the fish in order to make the fish more flavourful.

3)In a bowl, mix together the seasoning cubes/powder, Berbere spice powder and oil together

4) Rub the paste all over the fish.

5)Cover up the fish and put in the fridge to allow it to marinade for at least 2 hours or overnight (if you are not pressed for time).

6)After marinading, put in a grill pan and grill in the oven for about 30 minutes at 180 degree Celsius.

7) Keep checking and turn over half way through the cooking time in order to allow the other side of the fish to cook as well.

8) Once well cooked, take out of the oven and enjoy as desired!

I'd normally pair this with fried yam, fried sweet potatoes, plantain, with Pepper sauce! It is so delicious! But feel free to pair with anything else you wish.
