Recipe

No more bland tilapia with this delicious Baked Blackened Tilapia that is full of spicy and smoky flavor.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with tilapia. I love that it is affordable, versatile, and can be found almost anywhere in the country. This makes it accessible for almost everyone. It also has a mild flavor making it an approachable fish for those who aren't in love with fish and seafood. However I don't love the fact it can sometimes lack flavor, which is why I like to punch it up with lots of spice and flavor whenever I cook it. This Baked Blackened Tilapia just does that. The homemade seasoning truly packs a punch and you can control how strong it is by adjusting how much you put on. The butter adds some sweetness and creaminess to the fish. Served with some fresh lemon and it is one delicious and healthy dish.
