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."
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 2y 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 2y 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 2y agoSeemed like a whole bunch of spices just thrown on the fish. It was decent, not terrible. Probably won't make it again :(
sistdc 2y 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.

KarenTowns 3y agoIt was a bit spicy but tasted real good.
LaJeaune 3y 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 3y 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 3y agoQuick and easy to make. Serve with rice and don't be shy about adjusting spices to fit what you want.
