      The Louisiana blackening experience as described by a local Cajun songwriter, "...Paul Prudhomme burnt a fish and it all went through the roof!" lol...and that's the way it is.

      This is absolutely AWESOME. The seasoning mix is so great! I have non-stick pans that aren't safe for extreme high heat, so I had to make do with medium-high heat. It still worked just fine, about 4 minutes per side. Next time I will cut down on the seasoning just a little bit, as it got to be overpowering. I think that is due to the fact that my medium-high heat didn't "burn" a lot of it off. Anyways, since my pans are non-stick, I used only 1/2 tsp of oil for my filet, and it was just awesome! This is a favorite for us now, thank you.

      The whole family liked this recipe. I served the tilapia on top of Mexican rice. Lime juice was squeezed on the fish rather than lemon as it was what we on-hand.
