Grilled Tilapias garnished with fried shallots and scallions

My sister, Kim, has been in MD for more than one week now. We had a BBQ party yesterday at Tina's house. We have grilled beef, good marinated chicken, hot dogs, corns on the cob, and I made grilled tilapias. See below.

After I drained all the water that came out from the fish, I broiled them for an additional 15 minutes. Then I garnished them with fried shallots, scallions, cilantros, and peanuts. This can be wrapped with rice paper, vermicelli noodles and dip with lemony fish sauce. They are simply delicious and healthy. Check them out. Don't they look good?
