Grilled fish is so easy to prepare if you get your marinade right. I wanted to recreate the type of fish I ate in Warri, at those local corner joints, which is why pepper soup spice is in the list of ingredients. It gives the fish an extra something to make it more delicious! Within 30 minutes you can have this Grilled Tilapia Fish on your plate and ready to eat!
