Mike's Favorite Tilapia

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.

Helpful Hints

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).

I use Meyer Lemons where I can....so I will squeeze the entire lemon over the fish when I am serving. Oh, My....I do so love my fish!
