I generally like to bake unbreaded fish dishes, but in thesummer a hot oven is undesireable. I like searing in a non stick skillet it works, it is quick, and it is delicious.

tilapia fish fillets, thick ones

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Before you start cooking, season fillets with your spices.
In large hot, non stick skillet place oil, (medium hi heat) I leave in center of skillet and put garlic there till it sizzles, then spread out
2
Place onions in now and saute until beginning to get tender
3
scatter onions out and lay fish in skillet.
4
cook, uncovered on medium heat, don't get to anxious, do NOT turn fish until one side is nicely seared. (lift up edge with spatula and peek )
.
If you turn it too often, fillets will fall apart.
5
do keep the onions moving, so they don't burn, and if you need to, add another teaspoon of oil. If onions are browning too quickly, lay them on the fillets
6
check fish after 10 minutes for crispness on underside and turn fillets over.
Cook another 10 minutes or until fish is seared well and the flesh is nice and white.
7
Serve warm with a lemon slice if you wish
