This recipe got me all excited as I watched Marc Wiens Thailand video on YouTube. I had to try this recipe with my own twist as it screamed flavour to me.
The flavour profile of this recipe includes the 5 basic taste principles of Sweet, Sour, Bitterness, Umami and Saltiness.
The Salt bathed Tilapia makes for a crispy and non sticking fish when barbecued hence the Fish keeps it shape. The sweet, sour and tangy sauce that accompanies the Grilled Salted Tilapia makes for a must try dish.
The recipe is tailored to my personal preference, however you can add a teaspoonful of Fish sauce or a pinch of fermented locust beans knows as Dawadawa for that extra Umami flavour. Be adventurous and treat yourself to this incredible Grilled Tilapia recipe.
