Blackened Tilapia


  • Tilapia filets
  • Vegetable Oil

Blackening Powder Recipe

  • 1 Tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. ground red pepper


  1. Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl to create blackening powder.  Then moisten the sides of each tilapia filet (either with water or cooking spray), and coat with blackening powder.  (I generally use about 1 Tbsp. powder per filet.)
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp. of oil per filet in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Once oil is almost smoking, add filets and cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until fish is opaque and can be flaked with a fork.  Remove from pan and serve immediately.
