Cajun-Creole Tilapia

January 8, 2010

This recipe is quick, easy and full of flavor. I have several friends that do not eat fish and once they tried this dish, they were hooked. Tilapia is a wonderful fish to use since it is a very mild and flaky white fish.  This recipe is not only delicious, but healthy as well. Goes great with rice pilaf and buttered spinach. Prep time 2 minutes. Cook time 10 minutes.

Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning

1 pound Tilapia filets

1 lemon

3 tbsp olive oil

3 tbsp Tony Chacheres Creole Seasoning

If you choose to broil the fish, set oven to 500, or you can opt to pan fry. Coat tilapia with drizzled olive oil on both sides. Now season both sides with the creole seasoning. If you choose to broil, place in a metal pan lined with foil (makes easier clean-up). Cook for about 10 minutes or until seasoning darkens and fish becomes flaky. If  you opt to pay fry, set range to med-hi heat and lightly coat pan with a little extra olive oil.  Sear for 5 minutes on both sides. The coloring should be a medium caramel color. After the fish is done, squeeze lemon over all the pieces. Enjoy!

Grilled Creole and Lime Shrimp

December 29, 2009

This is my husband’s favorite. I made it by accident one day and hoped he would like it. His response, “Oh my…this is the best shrimp I have ever tasted!” The taste alone makes you only want shrimp prepared this way.

1 lb. large shrimp (peeled, and deveined)

1 lime

2 tbsp. Tony Chachare’s Cajun Creole Seasoning (can be found at Publix and Walmart Market

Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning

place)

1 tsp olive oil (optional)

After you have cleaned the shrimp, toss in the Creole seasoning. It can be best on a grill, but you can also fry on med-hi in a pan with a little bit of oil olive oil. Cook about 2 minutes on each side or until shrimp are solid in color. Squeeze lime juice over the whole dish. NOTE: Do not add the lime with the seasoning before cooking. This will cause the shrimp to start cooking itself due to the acidity. Also when the lime is added with the seasoning, it does not allow the creole seasoning to adhere.  Enjoy this hot, spicy, and well-rounded flavor that are presented in this dish!
