BBQ Bourbon Tilapia on rice

Ok here's another fun recipe, super simple super summery

serves 2

boil some water and make some plain white rice on the stovetop, drop in a dollop of oil and make about 2 cups (directions on bag)

Get 5 or 6 pieces of tilapia, grease up a bbq friendly tray with some canola oil spray and put the fish in. In a saucepan make some bbq sauce.

BBQ sauce goes like this: cut up 6 cloves garlic and sautee in olive oil, throw in about a third of a cup of bbq sauce ( I used hunts honey hickory bbq sauce), add about 5 tablespoons of honey and some seasoned salt and pepper, the juice from about a quarter of a lemon, and 5 or 6 shakes of tobasco, stir it up and throw in two shots of bourbon, let that bubble a minute and set on fire to burn off the rest of the booze. Taste and make sure its a potent flavorful yummy thing, then cover the fish in it.

Take a second aluminum tray and cut up 2 zucchinis like french fry shape. Toss them in with olive oil. Add parsley and salt and pepper.

Cut up a pineapple into big flat centimeter thick slices ( minus ends skin and core of course)

So when the rice is done and everything prepped head out to the grill, put the tin of zuchs on medium and the tin of fish on low and the pineapples on low directly on the grates.It should all take about 10 -15 mins

Serve in glass bowls, a cup of rice on the bottom and the fish, zuchs, and a big slice of grilled pineapple sittin pretty on the rice bed :) YUM!
