    i like to buy the frozen fillets, they come with 4 indiviually frozen, which makes mess less and easier when i leave the thawed bag in the fridge to grab and cook.

    tilapia fillets
    ( or any of your choice, but i choose tilapia because it has a mild fish taste)

    blackening seasoning

    pan spray


my two year old loves it. thaw fillets in fridge overnite for best results. lightly season with blackening seasoning, spray pan with pan spray or cooking spray heat pan on high heat add fish cook 1-3 minutes on each side or till fish flakes easily with a fork.

    I use Tony Chacheres creole seasoning, and spray butter. You can also bake it in the oven for 12 minutes at 375degrees if you want it wet. - 7/9/07

  • We do this often, but baked rather than stovetop cooking. It is a little more moist (wet) baked, but it works for us. - 11/6/11

  • Tried the new Tony Chacheres that says good for blackening and it was great. My husband said that was
    the wrong seasoning but we both loved it. I was going to make a sandwich for lunch today with the leftovers but my oldest daughter came by and ate them.

    I missed the part says "lighly season" and really coated the fish with the blackened seasoning. It was a little too hot. It was really easy to cook though and I will try this recipe again! - 1/24/08

  • This is awesome however I used lemon pepper instead of blackening seasoning. I heated up my pan and sprayed a little bit of Pam. Then I sprinkled the lemon pepper seasoning into the pan and placed my tilapia and seared it. Once it was seared I put it into a baking pan and baked for 10 min. YUMMMMMMM - 7/16/07
