Skinny Blackened TilapiaReport Violation
Ingredients for Seasoning:
2 tablespoons smoked paprika, see shopping tip
2 teaspoons onion powder
1½ teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne pepper)
Ingredients for Fish:
4 pieces Tilapia (5 ounces each)
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
1. In a small bowl, mix together all seasoning ingredients. Spread out on a plate.
2. Rinse tilapia and pat dry. Dip each piece into seasonings and coat on each side. Be sure each piece is coated well.
3. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick pan. When pan is hot, add fish, cover and cook over medium heat about 3 minutes. Using a spatula, turn fish over, cover and continue to cook about 2-3 minutes, until fish is done.
4. Be sure to serve with lemon slices. This fish tastes particularly delicious with lemon squeeze over the top.
Makes 4 servings (each serving, 5 ounces)
Most supermarkets sell tilapia at the fish counter. Many sell it fresh, not frozen. That’s my favorite way to buy it. In my photo, the pieces I bought were larger than 5 ounces so I cut off the ends and froze them for another use.
I love the flavor of smoked paprika so much more than regular paprika! It smells like BBQ flavors and really enhances the flavor of any recipe that uses paprika. I strongly recommend using it in this recipe. You’ll find it in most supermarkets in the spice aisle. I bought mine at Trader Joe’s.
