This blackened tilapia recipe is one of my favorite blackened fish recipes. What I like most about Tilapia is that its readily available all year round, so I never have to go without this tasty flavorful fish.
You will use a simple, but effective 8 ingredient blackened cajun seasoning mixture that will be sprinkled all over your tilapia for some mouthwatering and lip smacking flavor.
The eight (8) seasoning ingredients you will use include paprika, garlic powder, ground dried thyme, onion powder, dried basil, dried oregano, cayenne pepper, and ground pepper.
For best results, I recommend that you use a cast iron skillet. If you don't have cast iron, any heavy bottom skillet will work. Here is my recipe for Blackened Tilapia.
Special Notes: Be sure to wipe your cast iron skillet (caution its very hot) clean before cooking you second two pieces of Tilapia. Also, be sure your stove ventilation fan is working and in proper order, since blackening tends to create plenty of smoke.
