A couple of years ago my husband and I were in Sam's Club and a vendor was cooking tilapia for the customers to sample. That was the best tilapia I had ever had so he told me how he cooked them and I've been doing it this way ever since.

Step-By-Step

1Cover bottom of skillet with oil. I like using extra virgin olive oil aka/EVOO with this dish but any oil should work. I just feel it's a little healthier. Sometimes I add a pat of butter to the oil as well. This gives it a nice flavor. Heat it up before putting in the fish.

2Wash fillets and pat dry with a paper towel. This will help the seasonings to stick to the fillets better.

3Place fillets into the hot oil. Sprinkle on the seasonings and cook approximately 5 to 6 minutes. (This depends on the size and thickness of the fillets). Flip each fillet and sprinkle the other side with the seasonings and cook approximately 5 additional minutes. Flip once more and cook approximately one minute or less and plate them up.

4I like spooning the extra seasoned EVOO sauce over my fillets. This is so yummy to dip your bread in. You can certainly use your favorite seasonings instead of the ones I use.
