  • Squeeze juice from 1 lemon; mix with dressing. Pour half over fish in shallow dish; turn to coat both sides of each fillet. Refrigerate 15 min. to marinate. Refrigerate remaining dressing mixture for later use.
  • Meanwhile, heat grill to medium heat. Cut each of the remaining lemons into 4 slices. Remove fish from marinade; discard marinade. Place 8 lemon slices on grill grate; top with fish. Brush with some of the remaining dressing mixture. Grill 5 min.; turn.
  • Add remaining lemon slices and asparagus to grill. Cook 5 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork and asparagus is crisp-tender, brushing occasionally with remaining dressing mixture. Remove fish, lemon slices and asparagus from grill. Discard lemon slices under fish. Serve remaining lemon slices with fish and asparagus.

Substitute

Prepare using other firm-fleshed fish fillets, such as cod or salmon.

How to Determine When Fish is Cooked

Fish is done when it looks opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Undercooked fish looks translucent, while overcooked fish looks dry and falls apart.

How to Grill Vegetables

Serve with grilled fresh vegetables. Just toss your favorite vegetables, such as quartered red and green peppers or zucchini, cut lengthwise in half, with your favorite KRAFT Dressing, using about 2 Tbsp. dressing for each cup of vegetables. Drain the vegetables, then add to the grill for the last 5 to 7 min. of the fish grilling time. Grill until tender, turning occasionally.

This was my first experience grilling fish so I was apprehensive about how it would turn out, but it was straightforward. My tilapia filets were a bit too big for two lemon slices so in hindsight I should have made a matrix of lemon slices the size of the four filets and used them that way. The dressing for this recipe is actually called Sun Dried Tomato Dressing - there is no vinaigrette word in it, which cause me some concern when I looked for the ingredient.

Although we liked the method of grilling the fish (we used tilapia) and asparagus, and enjoyed the charred flavor, we felt the dressing detracted from, rather than enhanced the flavor of the fish. I will use this method again, omitting the dressing and just going with the lemon juice.

I used the roasted red pepper dressing instead because thats what I had in the house, and I also didn't brush any extra dressing on while on the grill. Nice lemon flavor. Will make again.

This one was definitely a keeper! My family loved it and requested that I make it once a week. Goes great with a baked potato on the side.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grilling the fish on top of the lemons was a great idea. Grilling the fish on top of the lemons was a great idea. It kept the fish moist and prevented it from sticking to the grill, but most of all it added a wonderful lemony taste all thru the fish. This is a keeper.
