Blackened Tilapia Sandwich

This is a quick and easy recipe that never disappoints. I use Zatarain's blackening spice mix, but you can use whatever kind you like. I like it because it has just enough spiciness but it isn't too hot. I also use fat free tarter sauce to cool the spice a little.

* 2 tilapia filets
* Zatarain's blackening spice mix
* wheat buns
* lettuce
* tomato slices
* fat free tarter sauce

1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
2. Sprinkle both sides of tilapia with blackening spice.
3. Place tilapia in skillet and cook about 3 minutes per side or until fish is opaque and can be flaked with a fork. ( I always cut my piece in half to make sure it is cooked through because obviously you want it to be done, but you don't want to cook too long because it can dry out)


  1. I bought tilapia at TJ's this week and haven't used it yet. I think I'll make these!
