If you like trying new seafood recipes, then you will enjoy my next few posts. I am really trying to eat lighter these days (birthday cupcakes yesterday don’t count)…so fish and shrimp will be showing up on the weekly menu more often.

Recently we went to one of my favorite restaurants, Bonefish Grill. This place has the freshest fish, and everything we try there is always delicious. The last time we were there for dinner, I had Grilled Grouper with a Chimichurri Sauce that was out of this world. I thought about it for days.

I wanted to recreate my delicious meal recently and was so happy to discover the recipe for the Chimichurri sauce on Bonefish Grill’s website. Even better, they have several great recipes posted that I would love to try! I think the Pan Asian sauce might be next!

Pan Fried Tilapia

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse chop until all ingredients are approximately 1/8 inch in size. Add Italian parsley and pulse chop until parsley is 1/8 inch in size. Add the olive oil and blend in quickly. (Do not over blend)
  2. Allow the sauce to marinate for 30 minutes before serving.

    The chimichurri sauce sounds wonderful. I’ll bet it would be good on chicken. (I don’t like fish.)

    Sounds good to me, I do enjoy tilapia. I’ve been meaning to try chimichurri too, I saw some guy on a cooking show use it on grilled steaks.

    This looks amazingly heathy and delicious at the same time. Now that is a combo you can’t beat. We don’t have a bonefish here, darn it.

    That’s great that you were able to recreate something soooo tasty! Perfect timing for me, too, as Lent is right around the corner. Hitting the print button right now. I’ll be needing lots of fish recipes for the next 40 days or so! YUM!

    Looked at the website for that place – and it’s also well reviewed – sounds wonderful. I’m all up for trying a new sauce for fish. I LOVE fish and am trying to learn how to make it better at home this year so I can have it more often,

  17. Girl Japan posted February 26, 2009 at 8:51 am

    I Love this plate you use SO MUCH! I really do that I wanted to come back and comment again..

  18. Maris posted February 27, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    Your chimichurri sauce sounds great! I never knew what it was until I looked it up recently. I bet it’s great on tilapia since it’s such a mild fish.

    Sound and looks great!!! Want to try it …what’s Bbq seasoning?

  24. alana tiller posted August 26, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    I just cooked this for dinner with a summer squash bake & it was FANTASTIC! I have not had it from Bonefish, but I can’t imagine theirs is better. Next time I will forego the salt in the chimichurri- the BBQ seasoning I used was full of it. Thanks!
