Seasoned Tilapia

Here is another pantry recipe. This is a great seasoning to put on fish. I keep some of the dried ingredients mixed up together just in case someone gets lucky on the pier and brings home some fresh fish. However, I generally put it on Tilapia and then cook it quickly in a very hot cast iron skillet. Remember the idea is to dust the fish and not concentrate on covering it totally.Ingredients
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 T onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp fresh chopped thyme
1 tsp fresh chopped oregano
1/4 C corn meal
5 Tilapia fillets

Mix all the ingredients and dust the Tilapia fillets. Heat 2 T. olive oil in a cast iron skillet. Cook the fillets about 4 minutes on each side. Watch your heat. You want to brown them, but not burn the corn meal.


About Comfort Cooking On Island Time

There are two things I can't resist; an old recipe handed down and passed around, and the beach. Growing up in the midwest I was introduced to true comfort food but always dreamed of a different landscape, and climate. Recently I acquired a 50 year old beach house. While stumbling after the great cooks of my past, I am focused on a future with cool waves and gently breezes......and watermelon rind pickles of course!
