Tickle your taste-buds Tilapia

Eryn Cooper-Shiflet


I make this at least 1 to 2 times a week!! I had a variation of this at a restaurant one time and I adored it, a while later the restaurant closed and I was stuck yearning for more. That is when I took matters into my own hands...

How to Make Tickle your taste-buds Tilapia


  • 1Season tilapia fillets with 2 dashes of seasoning salt, 2 dashes of Montreal steak seasoning (yes I know it's steak seasoning, but it works wonders on fish too), and 1 dash of cayenne pepper
  • 2Add 2 pats of butter to a pan and turn on medium heat, begin to cook fish turning it over after 2 to 3 minutes (because it is a thin fish) be gentle!
  • 3After you cook the amount of fillets you want, place them in a baking dish and sit off to the side.
  • 4To the same pan you used to cook the fish, add another 2 pats of butter and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of capers. You should start to smell their fragrance rather quickly, once you do, pour caper butter mixture over fish and back in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy
