Blackened TilapiaSubmitted by: OLSONICE
3 tablespoons of paprika powder
1 tablespoon of salt
1 tablespoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of ground white pepper
1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of dried thyme
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
Â½ teaspoon of celery seed
1 pinch of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 pound of Tilapia fillets
4 slices of white bread
Use the spice blend to coat the Tilapia fillets, and let them sit for 30 minutes in room temperature.
Slice the lemon into wedges.
Heat up a frying pan over high heat.
Pour the oil into the frying pan and place the Tilapia fillets in the pan when the oil is so hot it is nearly smoking.
Fry the Tilapia fillets until the fillets look opaque and can be easily flaked with a fork. This will usually take around 3 minutes per side.
Remove the Tilapia fillets and place each fillet on a slice of bread.
Pour the remaining content of the frying pan over the Tilapia fillets and the bread, and squeeze lemon juice over the Blackened Tilapia from the lemon wedges.
Enjoy the tasty Blackened Tilapia immediately.
