Blackened Tilapia Recipe


2 tbsp. salt
2 tbsp. smoked paprika
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. onion powder
2 tsp. red pepper & cayenne
2 tbsp. ground black pepper
2 tsp. ground thyme
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. seafood seasoning
Melted Butter (about a half a stick)

Mix seasonings together and generously sprinkle onto the fillet, rubbing mixture into the meat.
Dip the seasoned fillet into the melted butter.
Using a very hot skillet, cook approximately 2 minutes per side.
*I've used tilapia, catfish, haddock, grouper, snapper and cod/ I would think this would work well with most any fish.
*I also substituted smoked paprika for regular paprika because I prefer the smokier slightly sweet taste.
