Blackened Tilapia

Blackened Tilapia

1 ½ TBSP paprika
½ TBSP onion powder
½ TBSP salt
½ tsp. ground white pepper
½ tsp. ground black pepper
½ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. dried thyme
¼ tsp. garlic power
¼ tsp. celery seed
Dash cayenne pepper, or to taste

2 tilapia loins
1 TBSP olive oil

In a small bowl mix together spices.  Coat all sides of the fish with the spice mixture and if time allows place back in the fridge for 30 minutes.  Heat a medium skillet to medium high heat.  Add olive oil to hot pan and allow the oil heat for 30-60 seconds.  Place the fish in the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side or until fish is opaque and can be flaked with a fork.  Remove from the pan and serve with rice and vegetables.

This is one of our new favorites- we make it at least once a month and everyone is begging for seconds. Recipe adapted from

This looks pretty good. I always like to try new recipes. I tried a recipe with some sweet heat seasoning and it was really good. I think that I'm going to use it again.
