We enjoyed this (almost too easy to post) recipe. We used tilapia but I think other white fish would work equally well just adjusting the cooking time per thickness of fish. Recipe source: local newspaper.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning
  • 34 lb tilapia fillet
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil


  1. Rub fish fillets with jerk seasoning on both sides.
  2. Heat oil in skillet (I used a grill pan) over medium high heat and then add fish.
  3. Saute for 3 minutes and turn and cook for another 2-5 minutes or until fish is done.

Wonderful tilapia recipe! I used a jerk seasoning I found here on, but it is no longer listed in my reviews. :( Not sure what the recipe number was, but it was full of spice and was a great compliment to this recipe. I will make this easy recipe often. Thanks for sharing!

This was a really great recipe! Even though I love Tilapia, I sometimes find most recipes leave it bland, but not this one. The jerk seasoing really spices things up!

I enjoyed this simple recipe immensely. My family had given up on my ever creating a flavorful fish dish, but I think I won on this one. We're actually split on this; my sons and I enjoyed it, my husband didn't care for the seasoning or the texture of the fish, which I think I cooked just right. I had a bit of trouble with it sticking to the pan, if you have any hints about that. I do think it's important to cook the first side for just the three minutes before flipping them. They stuck a bit after cooking the second side. I served it with lemon, plain greek yogurt, basmati rice, and roasted parsnips and carrots. Thanks for posting!
