Soy Sauce Grilled Tilapia and Pork Chops Recipe #SundaySupper

Soy Sauce Grilled Pork Chops RecipeI love celebrating long weekends with friends by having a cookout.  For years, we did the traditional Hamburgers and Hot Dogs.  But you know me, I just don’t do well with the norm and love to make my friends feel special when we get together.  My recent favorite easy recipe to whip up for a cookout is Soy Sauce Grilled Tilapia and Pork Chops.

I realized that by the time I purchased the ground beef, tomatoes, onions, cheese, buns and condiments, the cost of serving hamburgers really adds up.  I can serve grilled Tilapia and Pork Chops with Orzo Pasta and creamed spinach and a great salad for the same cost or less.  My friends have really come to enjoy this tradition when we get together for Memorial Day or any BBQ.  The best part… so easy and so economical.

The recipe is exactly the same for Boy Sauce Grilled Tilapia and for Pork Chops.  The only difference is you can marinate pork chops over night for a more intense flavor but the Tilapia should not be marinated for more than an hour.  I love to serve both together but feel free to serve just fish or pork. The flavors in this recipe are amazing!

I love the system of kids rating! It truly is what matters most and if they say its over 8, then I’m sure it was fantastic! Great recipe, Isabelle. I LOVE the round up we have this weekend. :)

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I am not a fan of teriyaki sauce but I love soy sauce. This is a great option and nice that it is versatile for both fish and pork.

I find that it works out really well for a BBQ…. I have something to offer the meat lovers and the non-meat lovers!

I love that you have really made 2 main dishes with the same marinades & flavors. Something for everyone & easy to have both with out a big palette switch. I would suggest either a dry Riesling or a Pinot Grigio for this meal. And why not have BOTH on hand?! Cheers!

Great suggestion Eileen! I love Pinot Grigio but I have to tell you I loved the Riesling with the fish! Great suggestion!

So glad to be part of #SundaySupper, Isabel…thanks for all you do! Including these incredible pork chops…I adore pork chops, but don’t make them as often as I should!

A woman after my own heart – favorite fish {salmon and tiliapia} so when I see a recipe with either, I jump on it. This entire recipe looks amazing and I really wish I was truly eating #SundaySupper with you in your home {or mine}. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into #SundaySupper and the fantastic group of people you have brought together to help you promote your beautiful mission of bringing families together on Sundays around the family table. You’re amazing and I am so proud to call you friend. :)

I would have never thought about using the same seasonings on pork and fish but this looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it! Thank you for all you do to make this whole movement so successful. You are such an inspiration!

I’m not so sure about making the pork chops (personal preference but yours look fabulous and may change my mind!), but a big hell yea on the tilapia! And bourbon sea salt?! Never would’ve guessed! Thanks so much for keeping the #SundaySupper so strong :)
