I make my own seasoning for My Blackened Tilapia and it's much better than any store bought and I save $Money$, this is quick to make too and very tasty, it falls apart and doesn't this look tasty? Well trust me it really is. Try it and Enjoy Good Food

makes 4 servings

What you need:
 3 tablespoons paprika
 1 tablespoon onion powder
 1 teaspoon garlic powder
 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
 1 teaspoon dried oregano
 1 teaspoon dried thyme
 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt, or to taste
 1 pound tilapia fillets
 1 lemon, cut into wedges
 1 tablespoon Olive oil

How to make it:
In a small bowl or jar with a lid, make the spice blend. Mix together the paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, celery seed and kosher salt. Coat the fish fillets with the spice mixture, and allow to sit at room temperature for no longer than 30 minutes.
Heat a heavy skillet over high heat. Add oil, and heat until it is almost smoking. Place the fillets in the pan, and cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until fish is opaque and can be flaked with a fork. Remove from the pan, this is good served with rice. Pour pan juices over the rice and squeeze lemon juice all over.
