Blackened Tilapia

I made this dish on my lunch break. I actually wanted a cranberry turkey sandwich but got home and realized there’s no bread in the pantry. Quick decision, I decided to make a full meal; and the easiest thing to thaw and cook in under an hour is Tilapia, and that I had plenty of.  J

1 pound tilapia fillets
3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoon celery seed
2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
Salt to taste
Lemon Sauce
3 tablespoon of butter
¼ cup white wine
½ lemon (juiced)

  1. In a small bowl, combine the spices to make a blend.
  2. Toss everything together and coat the fish fillet
  3. Allow seasoned fillet to sit at room temperature for a few minutes
  4. Heat a heavy skillet over high heat
  5. Spray with non stick spray
  6. Place the fillets in the pan, and cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until fish is opaque and can be flaked with a fork.
  7. Remove fillet from skillet
  8. In same skillet, melt 3 tablespoon of butter
  9. Add white wine and lemon juice
  10. Let simmer for a minute and spoon over fish

              *I served over brown wild rice

Blend all spices together

Rinse and pat dry

generously sprinkle seasoning on fish

make sure the skillet is hot before adding fish

3 minute on each side

my trusty Moscato White Wine :)
perfect on just about anything
