An excellent and very easy recipe for lovers of healthy recipes. Tilapia fried in a pan in a large number of various spices.
- paprika : 1.5 tsp
- light brown sugar : 1.5 tsp
- dried oregano : 1 tsp
- garlic powder : 0.75 tsp
- cumin : 0.5 tsp
- cayenne pepper : 0.25 tsp
- salt : 1 tsp
- six-ounce tilapia : 4 fillets
- lime : 1 piece (cut into wedges (optional, for serving))
- olive oil : 2 Tbsp (for cooking)
Stages of cooking
Begin by making the Cajun spice rub. In a small bowl, combine paprika, brown sugar, oregano, salt, cumin, garlic powder and cayenne. Don’t worry about the amount of cayenne — the fillets have a little kick to them but they’re not too spicy, even for kids.
Next, dust the spice rub evenly over the tilapia fillets.
Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan, then cook the fillets a few minutes per side, until crisp and reddish-brown (“blackened”) on the outside and flaky on the inside.
