How to Make Blackened Tilapia
- Wash the fillets in cold water and pat dry. Then combine all seasonings together in a bowl that the fish will fit in. Mix it up well and then place the Tilapia down in the bowl and coat both sides. If necessary, pat the seasonings on to the fish. Make sure it has a generous coating.
- Heat a frying pan up to medium high and place 1 Tbsp of butter and 1 tsp of oil in pan. Make sure it is hot before you place the fish into the pan. (This helps to get that nice crust on the fish) Then cook 4-6 minutes on each side. Then, repeat these steps for the other fillet or else if you have a large enough pan place both fillets in at the same time with butter and oil.
