Blackened TilapiaSubmitted by: SWAMPBILLIES
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
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.
