Pan Seared Blackened Tilapia

Decided to put together my own spice mix when I could not figure out how the make this tilapia more interesting than butter and lemon.. it definitely has a kick so use the amount of cayenne pepper at caution; unless you don’t mind a kick in your food


1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (use 1/2 if need be, this definitely makes it hot!)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon salt
About 1 tablespoon all natural butter

Combine all spices in a bowl and mix until combined

Season tilapia on both sides with the spice rub

Add about 1 tablespoon all natural butter to a pan on medium heat

Add tilapia and sear about 3-4 minutes per side

And enjoy!

I served this with a side of roasted brussel sprouts but feel free to use whatever vegetable you like!
