"We can't get Tilapia in Australia so used herring and gar. Pan frying I found it was too easy to burn so used oven next attempt. I used olive oil, less red pepper and no salt. Also I used a shaker to add coating for better control and less mess. Tasted great."- beluga2

Top-ranked recipe named "Blackend Baked Tilapia"
Preheat Oven at 350. Mix all seasonings in a bowl.
Dip fillets in melted butter and coat with seasonings. Put in a glass baking dish and cook until fish is easily flaky with a fork.
Or if wanting to pan fry
Heat iron skillet on high 5 minutes. Mix all seasonings in a bowl. Dip fillets in melted butter and coat with seasonings. Place fillets in hot skillet and cook 2 minutes on each side.
I've started putting the seasoning in a shaker as suggested by another user and it works great!

m994836 2 months agoAwesome. This recipe (minus the salt) produces a restaurant-worthy blackened fish. I love it so much, I keep a spice jar filled with the separated ingredients (looks nice too) on hand for easy weeknight blackened tilapia. Thanks for posting!
mogriff1 2 months agoThis recipe is so good! I used 1 tsp of coriander instead of lemon pepper and olive oil instead of butter. So much flavor with the right amount of heat! Will definitely make this again!
jbattle 8 months agoSeemed like a whole bunch of spices just thrown on the fish. It was decent, not terrible. Probably won't make it again :(
sistdc 9 months agoVery good! Great taste and very quick. Reduced red pepper to 3/4 tsp based on other reviews but will increase to 1 full tsp next time. Added no salt & used unsalted butter per recipe; was not salty.

LaJeaune 1 year agoThis recipe actually turned out better than I thought it would. A bit on the salty side, but I threw it with a Caesar salad and the family enjoyed it.

Colemccormack 3 years agoMy husband and I would never eat Tilapia before...we tried this last night and LOVED it!!
MichaelaRae 3 years agoThis was a bit bland but I just made it as a lunch real quick before work, I didn't have any red peper or onion powder so that's probably why also i used olive oil instead of butter. It's good and I made extra spice so I can do it again Thanks!
