Griddles are a suitable alternative for grilling inside or cooking without a stove. Use either a griddle placed on top of the stove or an electric griddle, which just needs to be plugged into an outlet. There are many foods that can be cooked on a griddle, including tilapia. Tilapia is a mild, white fish that is harvested from fresh water or grown in farms. This rich source of protein cooks up quickly on a griddle. Cooking tilapia on a griddle provides a healthy, light meal that goes well with rice and vegetables.

Step 1

Place the tilapia on a workable, flat surface, such as a shallow dish.

Step 2

Preheat a griddle to medium heat.

Step 3

Rub 1 tbsp. of olive oil all over the tilapia.

Step 4

Season both sides of the tilapia with your favorite herbs and spices.

Step 5

Spray non-stick cooking spray on the griddle, if you are using a griddle that does not have a non-stick surface.

Step 6

Put the tilapia on the griddle and cook for 3 minutes on each side.
