This blackened tilapia was a huge hit at supper tonight.
And so easy!
You'll need -
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 cup butter, divided
5 fresh tilapia fillets
Combine spices in a bowl; set aside.
In a separate bowl, melt 5 tablespoons butter.
Dip each fillet into butter and then coat with spices.
Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter in a pan over medium heat.
Cook fillets on one side for 3 minutes.
Turn and cook on the other side for 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
