SAUTÉED TILAPIA
Yield: N/A

Tilapia fillets

Salt and pepper
Combination of ¾ seasoned breadcrumbs with ¼ flour
Half unsalted butter, half vegetable oil just to cover the bottom of a skillet
Lemon wedges on the side

1. This fish is so mild – so tender – so wonderful, it really needs no embellishments. Lightly salt and pepper the fillets and dip them into seasoned breadcrumbs or flour. Heat butter and oil in a non-stick skillet. Cook the fish, uncovered, until browned on both sides. Serve with lemon wedges on the side. Accompany with quickly steamed fresh broccoli, spinach or cauliflower (Melt sharp Cheddar cheese, Mozzarella or Gorgonzola over the cauliflower for extra flavor). Serve freshly-baked French bread on the side.

BLACKENED TILAPIA WITH SPICY SAUCE !!!!SPICE AND MORE SPICE!!!!
Yield: 2 Servings

Grilled in a cast iron skillet
2 Tilapia fillets
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
Paul Prudhomme’s MAGIC Seasoning Blends, Blackened Redfish Magic®
Cast iron skillet
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano, or ½ teaspoon dried
1/8 teaspoon cumin powder
1 small onion, chopped fine

Red Bliss or white boiling potatoes

1. Squeeze lemon over fillets. Melt butter. Brush or dip the fillets with the melted butter. Sprinkle Paul Prudhomme’s seasoning all over.

3. Cook over high heat for a short time on one side. Turn fillets and cook on the other side. Be careful not to burn. Serve with sauce on the side.
4. SAUCE: May be made in advance: Combine oregano, cumin, chopped onion and canned stewed tomatoes in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 15 minutes, or longer. Or, combine ingredients in a covered microwavable container. Microwave 1 minute on high. Stir. Microwave 1 minute longer for crunchy onions, 2 minutes for soft.
5. Boil small potatoes to accompany.
