It's a simple easy way to fix fish for the first time
"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

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!

jbattle 5 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 6 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.
Stacie82 1 year agoExcellent recipe... I do not add the salt. It isn't needed. I do ad Cajun spice ( personal preference.. Love it!) I make this at least once a week!!! I served with green beans n broiled peppers
apbt_rescue 1 year agoQuick and easy to make. Serve with rice and don't be shy about adjusting spices to fit what you want.

Colemccormack 2 years agoMy husband and I would never eat Tilapia before...we tried this last night and LOVED it!!
MichaelaRae 2 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!
vdianellos 2 years agoLoved it! We only cooked two filets so we halved the recipe. It worked great. We used frozen tilapia from Sam's which was too thin and, therefore, very "strong". So, if you use small filets you might consider less spice.
Amyo031503 3 years agoDelicious! 1 tsp of red pepper was plenty for us, though. I baked it for 15 minutes at 350-perfect!
