Mike's Favorite Tilapia Recipe
Mike's Favorite Tilapia Notes
This is a garlic, lemon, pepper flavored tilapia. The 3 spice blends I use have a lot of overlap on the garlic, lemon & pepper flavors, but each brings a little something different along with it. I find they work well together, while letting the main flavors shine. It's that little background flavor that makes them go hhhmmm.
- 4 6-ounce tilapia fillets
- 1/2 teaspoon Back-of-the-Yards Butcher's Rub
- 1/2 teaspoon Trinidad Lemon-Garlic Seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon Florida Seasoned Pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
Serves / Yields
Preheat oven to 375F.
Brush a little of the olive oil in bottom of shallow baking dish.
Mix the three seasonings well in a small bowl.
Rinse the tilapia & pat dry. Season tilapia with the spice mix on both sides & place in baking dish. Drizzle lightly with remaining olive oil. Bake for 25-30 minutes until tilapia is cooked through & flakes easily. Sprinkle with lemon juice when it comes out of the oven.
I usually give the spice mix a lite grind in my mortar & pestle, I find it brings out the flavors, but it is no big deal if you don't have one (or forget like I do).
