I love seafood so much and am not a big fan of bacon, but I do have to say that these flavors went together very well. I've had this recipe for a long time and it is actually a shrimp recipe. I had a lot of Tilapia in my freezer, so I decided to try to adapt this recipe for Tilapia. It worked very well.
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 Tbsp lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
10 Med shrimp (or Tilapia cut into smaller pieces)
5 slices bacon, cut into half
1 (4 oz) jar whole green chilies, drained and sliced lengthwise
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced (optional)
1 lime, cut into wedges (optional)
1. Whisk together the oil, lime juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Toss the fish in to marinade. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
2. Preheat an indoor grill (or skillet) to med-high heat.
3. Remove fish from marinade and shake off excess liquid. Wrap each piece of fish with a strip of chili pepper, than half a bacon slice. Cook on preheated grill (or skillet) until the bacon is crisp, and the fish is hot. Approximately 6-10 minutes. Sprinkle the fish with diced avocado and garnish with lime wedges to serve.
