Easy Cajun Tilapia

Submitted by: THEBERT99

Introduction

This wonderful, spicy entree can be made with tilapia or any other white fish. I love it with fresh Gulf of Mexico red snapper or grouper. This wonderful, spicy entree can be made with tilapia or any other white fish. I love it with fresh Gulf of Mexico red snapper or grouper.

Ingredients

    1-4oz. Tilapia filet (or whatever fish you choose)
    1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1/2 tbsp. Unsalted Butter (the real stuff works best)
    Emeril's Bayou Blast, added to taste (Actually, any Cajun Spice will work, so choose your favorite)*

Directions

In a skillet, melt butter and olive oil. You should have just enough to cover the skillet.
Cover the fish with the cajun spice as you would a rub.
Cook the fish in the butter/oil. The fish should cook 2-5 mins on each side, depending on thickness, until done.
The fish will probably fall apart when you flip it and remove it. Just be careful.
Let the fish drain on a paper towel to remove as much of the butter and oil as you can.


This recipe makes a single filet, but can be easily adjusted to make more.


* - to cut back on sodium, create your own rub with paprika, garlic, cayenne pepper, and black pepper.
